CREATE FOR MENTAL HEALTH INVITATION FOR MEMBERS, STAFF & FAMILIES.
I hope this message finds you well. As we begin our new year we all find ourselves yet again in very anxious and worrying times. In saying farewell to 2020, we had hoped for a more reassuring start to 2021, and by all accounts it seems as if we may have to dig deep again into ourselves to find something to buoy our minds during another lockdown, something to fortify us and keep connections strong while physically distanced from those we love and care about.
With that in mind, there is one thing that is free from restrictions... our ability to create. So, in an effort to help engage our minds as a way to stay connected, we have decided to share an idea with you all in the hope it will give us all a focus, some relief and a goal to work towards.
We are asking our members, staff and their families to participate, if they wish, in an exhibition which we envision happening at the end of 2021.
This exhibition will include works of art and craft from any medium you wish, whether it be painting, photography, wood work, embroidery, knitting, clay, there are NO restrictions on at least this one thing for 2021. It will be your choice as to what to create and in your choice of medium.
We envision to have an auction of the work and monies raised will go to a charity that supports mental health. If there is any lesson that 2020 gave us, it was that our mental health during these times is incredibly vulnerable, just as much as our physical health. To help support our community, our friends, our families, ourselves, we would like to extend this invitation to participate in what we hope will be a celebration of our resilience through what have been and continue to be some of the most difficult and challenging experiences we will know in our lifetime.
If you are interested in participating please send an email to email@example.com by the 28th February 2021. Once we have an idea of numbers we will be in touch with further details.
Thank you for taking the time and we look forward to seeing what you have in store!
