The Lockdown Banners

This event takes place at Smith Art Gallery

Discover inspiring stories and uplifting poetry in this new exhibition by artist Ian Beesley, designer Martyn Hall, cartoonist Tony Husband and poet Ian McMillan. During lockdown this collective created a series of large scale, colourful banners celebrating the NHS, carers, keyworkers and volunteers. Inspired by the Confederation of Health Service Employees (COSHE) banners of the 1970s, this new display tells the story of the pandemic through the voices and perspectives of those who were saving lives and keeping the country running, while highlighting important social issues that have been raised during this difficult time.
