In 2020 – 2021, we were thrilled to partner with The Southbank Centre on their Art by Post project which delivers free poetry and visual arts activities to people all over UK, via their letterbox!

The Southbank Centre developed Art by Post during the first Covid-19 lockdown to engage those most isolated by social distancing measures, with a particular emphasis on reaching older adults living with long term health conditions.

Art by Post is very simple. Free creative booklets were sent to those who signed up every 4 weeks. The booklets guided participants through activities which spark the imagination and encourage creativity. A community of over 2,000 people all over the country took part in Art by Post. Also included in the packs were Freepost envelopes and participants were invited to share their artwork and creative responses with the Southbank Centre to be part of an Art by Post exhibition in their building in 2021.

Art by Post was developed in consultation with Southbank Centre and was funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
