We were delighted when our Art for All group was shortlisted for a national award for our work during the pandemic - Creative Lives People's Choice Award.   

In March 2020, when the group could no longer meet, ‘Art for All’ was born. Using Zoom, and the help of a professional artist volunteering their free time to support the attendees, the project was led by user feedback each week. 

The session supported long-term mental health needs and connected with an art group in the Hebrides, to take advantage of the online possibilities and exchange beyond the immediate community. As lockdown eased, a new project 'Holding Hands' was started across Norfolk: 

"People draw and decorate or add words to an image of their own hands, on a large continuous roll of paper, with each hand touching the last, making a symbolic end to the period when we were discouraged to touch." Pam Spicer, Art For All
