Creative, community arts during Covid.
The Creative Doodle Book is a hands-on resource developed by Mind the Gap and York St John University to support socially distanced community arts practice during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The disruption caused by Covid-19 has forced many community groups to drastically adapt or even suspend their activities. This has been particularly impactful on organisations working with marginalised and vulnerable people.
During ‘normal’ times the arts have a vital role in supporting resilience through providing opportunities for creative expression. During the Covid-19 crisis, it is even more vital to find ways for everyone to express their creativity in community contexts and the Creative Doodle Book project is providing exciting ways for this to happen.
The project is working with community groups across the country throughout 2020-21. If you would like to be involved please email Deborah Dickinson here…
