Art by Post, Southbank Centre - ongoing

The Southbank Centre has launched Art by Post, a new scheme which aims to reach people who are isolated and without digital access with free packs of creative activities designed to keep their minds active, help them feel connected to others and improve their mental health and wellbeing. The activities are designed for people living with dementia and chronic health conditions. People can self-refer or make a referral for someone they know.

Participants are invited to return their poetry and artworks via freepost envelopes, and these will form an interactive exhibition when Southbank Centre reopens. This will give a platform and voice to a hidden community and will invite audiences to reflect on the experience of social isolation that many people in our society will be continuing to live with.
