Creative call out: Women, lockdown & the future

WomenCentre is dedicated to women centred working.

We believe it is important to amplify women’s voices through creativity and facilitate sharing learning during Covid-19 times (and beyond).

To achieve this we encouraged all women on CO (participants, mentors, befrienders, volunteers and staff) to be creative through art to show how we have been coping in the pandemic and lockdown, and what we hope for the future.

Creative activities can help to reduce stress and worries. You can be creative on your own to relax or you can spend time being creative with others in your household.

Getting pencils out, writing or drawing can help our minds rest. Art can be anything: poetry, writing, photos, drawing and more.

Look out of your window, watch the sunshine & shadow on the walls, get inspired by everyday things.

Our creative call out ‘Women, lockdown & the future’ ran throughout 2020.

You can still be creative.

As part of the call out activities, we designed (with support from our partners) ‘get inspired art sheets’ to offer ideas for your activities.

You can download the creative sheets below and enjoy some more creative time. We explored specific themes:

  • photos
  • pictures – drawing, painting, doodling
  • poetry (2 pages)
  • conceptual art (2 pages)

Create & enjoy!
