Thanks to all of the young contributors who have sent photos taken by young people (and the odd parent) over the last month representing children’s experiences in lockdown, we will leave them up for the next week and will be looking to carry out some new events this month as lockdown continues. So watch this space!
This project is a partnership with artist Catherine Rive who for many years has been developing photowalks with children in local schools and nurseries.
We have 107 photographs attached to street signs around our neighbourhood on the following roads Woodlands Park Rd , Clarendon Rd, Avondale Rd, Conway Rd and Cranleigh Rd
It’s interesting to reflect that children all over the world are experiencing lockdown what are the differences and similarities globally for children and families?
If you are out for a walk this week why not walk around and take time to stop and look at the images , reflect on them , and reflect on the experiences of children and families in lockdown, what are the themes emerging , what things have been important to children.
If you want a fun activity to do with your kids around the neighbourhood we have made a fun scavenger hunt to get you to see what you might find on the trail. It will be up until the 7th of June
It might be a fun activity to do throughout the week during home-schooling or just to change up your walk on the way to the local parks.
