Curious Minds said: “It has been truly inspiring to witness how schools, the cultural sector and wider communities have made use of art and creativity to help children and young people express themselves, engage them in continued learning and as a route to their improved wellbeing.”
The Lowry did numerous things to help keep kids in Salford busy during lockdown. They worked on ideas for children to do when the weather was bad, and created a ‘creative care pack’ for young people to download and do at home. The Lowry.
