The Creative Collective was based off 2020 and how it has been a significant moment for all of us; can anyone remember a time when life had to change so quickly for so many? The experiences of COVID-19, lockdown and the re-emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement have also had a profound impact on many of us. Creativity can help us make sense of it all and people have been creating art in different forms to help communicate and express their feelings.
At the council, we wanted to share and celebrate the creativity of Westminster’s brilliant young people by hosting a series of events.
The artwork we received varied from audio clips, short films, poems, paintings, drawings, statements or digital work that were related to the following themes:
We are excited to announce that The Creative Collective will be back in 2022, where we will showcase the winning works in a variety of exhibitions.
We would like to thank children’s services, schools, libraries, archives, The Saatchi Gallery and all our partners supporting this work. For any questions or enquiries, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for all of your support during the Creative Collective, without you - we would not be able to return next year!
