Seascale School Lockdown Gallery
We are all experiencing lockdown in both shared and unique ways. Help your child to understand the similar challenges we all are facing, and the fact that each of us are a small part of a big history moment. Help them to take a photograph of something that shows what lockdown means to them and share these images with Historic England below, as well as with school.
Please send your own photographs into school, either using Evidence Me or by email, and we will load them into a slide show for all to enjoy.
Just put 'Lockdown Gallery' in the caption.
Historic England Lockdown Project
Running from Wednesday 29 April to Tuesday 5 May, the aim of the #PicturingLockdown project is to create a unique and reflective record of a week across the nation during this extraordinary moment in history.
We want to spark a conversation about identity and its connection to history and place, and help people navigate their way through with reflection, expression and creativity.
Claudia Kenyatta, Director of Regions at Historic England said:
"We are facing one of the most extraordinary moments in living memory. During this time of necessary lockdown restrictions, we are asking the public and some of our most talented contemporary artists to help us record history, whilst being careful to abide by the government’s social distancing measures. We want people to show us their experiences of lockdown, how places local to them have transformed, communities have come together, and life has changed for us all. These challenging times are encouraging us all to pause and reflect upon our relationship with our surroundings. We hope this project inspires creativity and reflection, allowing the public create a unique time capsule for the future."
