Creative project for Children and Young People
I wanted to let you know about a project for children and young people that Sea Mills 100 is running with Sea Mills and Coombe Dingle Together.
We are inviting children and young people to send us a postcard about their experience of lockdown and the current situation. It is an opportunity for them to express their feelings about this and get them seen by others. The postcards will form a new display in the Sea Mills 100 museum (phone box in Sea Mills Square) and on notice boards around Sea Mills and Coombe Dingle. We will also use them on our website and social media. We will preserve them as an archive which we hope will be both a historical record and a conduit for the voice for children and young people during this time.
Any child or young person wherever they live can participate and we would obviously like those in Sea Mills and Coombe Dingle to be well represented.
I attach some resources for the project. The JPG blank postcard is intended to be used to create a digital postcard on a computer, tablet or phone. The PDF’s are printable and provide a paper template on the correct size. The templates are not vital. I am happy to receive any roughly postcard sized paper, card or a digital image that is readable when printed that size. Postcards can be signed or anonymous, and either sent to 28 St Edyth’s Road, Sea Mills, Bristol BS9 2ES, emailed to email@example.com or posted to twitter or instagram tagging @SeaMills100 #LockdownPostcard
I hope you like the project. I really hope that we can use it to explore how children are feeling and promote some understanding of that amongst adults locally and hopefully further afield too.
I would love it if you could use these templates with groups you are working with and / or promote the project within your networks. The first two jpgs attached are designed for this purpose.
