‘Together We Are Stronger’ is a project to record stories of isolation, bravery, and kindness during lockdown, to reconnect generations and foster a sense of community (during the Covid-19 pandemic) via digital storytelling.
Artist Natasha Rand (founder of Creation Generation) interviewed residents and staff from Somerset Care and local elders from Yeovil to ask how they have been coping, and to share their life experiences of difficult times from their past.
Natasha Rand invited Yeovil Creatives members to take part in this community project and create a response through the title, as a theme, and the podcast. The artworks would be given as a gift to the Care Home and to the elderly residents who shared their stories with us to enable the project TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER, making special way to connect through creativity. Before that, Yeovil Creatives’ responses will take part in the exhibition, showing May 19 to June 30, in Yeovil Art Space .
