Many of the artworks will be for sale, with 25% of all proceeds going to Hope In Depression, a UK based charity which provides support and advice for people suffering with anxiety and depression and their carers. 

For many people, creativity was an important way to express their experiences and feelings through lockdown, with many people giving art a go for the first time or revisiting a lost hobby. Many experienced the benefits of creativity as a tool for wellbeing and mindfulness. The aim of this competition and exhibition is to bring together a collection of works that reflect people’s personal experiences of this time.



September 30 (Wednesday) - October 19 (Monday)
