Art Pop-Up's Stamford Journals Together project showcased at exhibition in Ironmongers Street
People’s creative lockdown talent is being showcased with a town centre exhibition.
Charity Art Pop-Up started the Stamford Journals Together project in March to spread positivity and a sense of purpose to people self-isolating during the coronavirus outbreak.
The charity - with the help of SOS Stamford and the Evergreen Care Trust - distributed more than 400 free journals to people in Stamford and the surrounding areas.
Sam Roddan, director, said: “We have had an amazing response. I think people found it a useful way of finding focus and purpose.
“People had more time to think about being creative and trying things they wouldn’t normally have done before.”
She added that they have ‘had lovely feedback’ both during lockdown and while collecting the journals.
The exhibition in Ironmonger Street, Stamford, includes creative writing, diary entries and drawings.
