About I'm Thinking of You ... 

 

I’m thinking of you is a virtual postcard project inviting people to connect with themselves and others during these extraordinary times. Over the coming 12 weeks the project will have a key target audience of young people and the wider Gwent communities and key workers. A different artist will be commissioned each day to create a bespoke postcard that invites people to respond in some way.

 

As the project develops we will encourage specific interactions on different days e.g. teachers to kids, kids to kids, youth workers to kids, coaches to kids, roots of empathy families to kids, teachers to Teachers … and of course everyone to the NHS.

 

The postcards will be:

— Generated around the 5 ways of well-being: connect, give, take notice, keep learning and be active

— In different artforms including image, illustration, song, spoken word, poetry, film and others

— Created by artists and artists working with participants within the community.
