More about the Covid-19 experiences project

This project is designed to help people, including key-workers who have experienced Covid-19 on the front-line, to process their experiences through art and creativity.

Selected individuals will have the opportunity to collaborate with an artist to tell their story as part of a new exhibition which will open in Autumn 2020.

Community is at the heart of everything we do at Firstsite. Our gallery, in the heart of Colchester, presents exhibitions made in collaboration with local people to produce relatable experiences and help us all to discover creative solutions to life’s challenges. 

This new project is vital to help our community understand the far-reaching effects of the pandemic, and navigate a way through the world we now find in front of us. 

Closing date for entries has been extended to: 5pm, Monday 20th July 2020.
