CORRIDOR ART BOX
As a direct response to the Covid-19 crisis, Health and Justice NHS England commissioned Corridor to create 300 bespoke art boxes for women, children and young people under lockdown who are experiencing acute isolation. Many people who will receive the art boxes have been identified as having additional/complex needs such as autism, ADHD as well as many having mental health challenges.
Corridor has created resources that provide opportunities for creativity, encouraging mindful activity and providing an opportunity for self-expression at this challenging time.
Each box consists of carefully considered, quality art materials – pens, papers, pastels, pencils, a booklet of suggested activities and a set of images (postcards)
We are thrilled to have commissioned 6 artists, Lucy Joyce, James Kirby Mark Murphy, Daniel Regan, Becky Warnock and Nilupa Yasmin to create these bespoke postcards especially for our unique Corridor Art Boxes.
