Salford based ‘Energise Centre’ recently pulled together a creative collection of 2020.
The Salford community centre is located on Douglas Green and was calling for submissions up to Friday 11th December so they are able to release the collection before the end of the year.
It is supported by ‘the big life group’ and it is a centre from which ‘statutory, community and voluntary organisations deliver health and wellbeing services, including a GP surgery’.
After this strange year, the scheme called ‘Salford Stories’ was run with the aim that Salfordians would send in things that had helped them get through the year.
Anything was requested from a recipe for the perfect banana bread to pictures of the arts and crafts that kept people sane over multiple lockdowns and social distancing.
The production of this portfolio is intended to highlight the positive things that have come from this year and how Salford and much of the nation have found joy and positivity in the little things.
We want to hear from you!
2020 has been a challenging year for us all. We are hoping to gather together a collection of writing, art-work, poems, photos and recipes that tell the story of our year!
Please email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org before 11th December pic.twitter.com/14Zwd4CWGc
