Artistic responses

Galleries across the world have opened their virtual doors during the lockdown, offering online tours, events, and activities. For some, viewing art is a solace, a chance to forget the stress of the pandemic and become lost in another place and time. For those creating art in these difficult times, it can be just as therapeutic, an opportunity to shift the focus from the worries about daily life and the health and wellbeing of friends and loved ones.

And it doesn’t have to hang on the walls of a gallery for art to touch our lives; the children of the rainbow have drawn and stuck in windows across the country are symbols of gratitude and hope.
