Covid-19: Latest updates & how we're helping our community

Creative Community Response to Coronavirus

The Letters From LockDown

We know many of you are looking for activities to keep the little ones entertained or to pass the time if you are not a Key Worker busy keeping things running!

We’re missing you coming to see us at the Hub too and our beautiful venue is very quiet and lonely without you all. But we have had an idea to make us all feel a bit better and we need your help! 

We want to capture this little bit of history that we’re all part of and make a very special exhibition. 

By using the magic of the internet we want to capture your thoughts and feelings in a community art project that helps us remember this crazy time.

We’d like you to create something special for our gallery space at The Hub, which looks so sad without an exhibition at the moment! The Gallery is the perfect space to fill with all your thoughts, drawings and words about everything that is happening because of Coronavirus. 

While we’re in lockdown, we’ll post your entries on our social media to create a digital exhibition and then when this is all over we hope to open our gallery for the whole community to visit and see all your amazing work in our exhibition, we might even have a party to celebrate!

Scroll down to see entries from our wonderful community and find out how you Can Get Involved!

The Hub is working in partnership with local Artist, Rosie & Ramona to make this community project happen. Over to Rosie to explain a little more and give you some creative inspiration!

Write a poem or Limerick?

You could draw a picture?

Or maybe write to a Key Worker?

Get Involved

We want to hear from everyone so get drawing, writing and photographing so we can document our community’s collective experience of CoronaVirus.

Scan or photograph your responses (you can download a scanner app on your smart phone) and send them in as a high quality image (PDF or JPEG) to gallery@thehubstmarys.co.uk or if you’d prefer you can post them (whilst doing your daily exercise!) to LFL, 54 Curlew Close, Lichfield, WS149UL  

The Hub in Partnership with

Rosie and Ramona is a completely independent company. Rosie has been super arty since she was tiny. Encouraged by her incredibly crafty family, art was her favourite subject at school and she went on to study at The Manchester School of Art. 

After a few years working in filmmaking and traveling the world Rosie is now 31. And for the most part she is looking after her toddler Ramona. But sometimes the two of them make beautiful things! (Well Ramona mainly makes a mess!)
