What is the Frome Commuity Exhibition?
Welcome to the Frome Community Exhibition! We are a small group working in partnership with Edventure, Health Connections Mendip and The Make Shed to plan an exhibition of the arts and crafts made in Frome during this period of isolation.
We would like to offer the Frome Community Exhibition as a place not just for your artwork but as a space for reflection. A place where we can come together, to grow, and to learn from this experience as a community. It would be great to see the things that you have made during this time and share your stories, insights and experiences.
Through speaking with our partner Jenny at Health Connections Mendip, we picked up on the idea of a community exhibition, suggested by her son, Luke Nicolson, who thought it would be great to have a common creative goal that people can work towards while in isolation.
How can I get involved?
We would love for you to join us!
Creation can come from anywhere, so whether you have a pen or an egg box, some paints lying about in a cupboard, or are using this time to take up photography, upcycle some old junk, improve your knitting, or even write poetry or songs, all exhibits are welcome!
If you've already found some creativity during this time and are working on a project yourself, we would love to see the things you have been making too! Feel free to share them with us @FromeCommunityExhibition on Facebook.
You can enter on your own, with others that are isolating with you or connect and create with others online.
We are a group of students from the Spring 2020 Edventure Frome Start-Up Course. Initially we were tasked with creating a community bike workshop, but as the Coronavirus situation developed, we began to see that starting a bike workshop was not going to be possible at this time.
We therefore shifted to think how people would be feeling in isolation, and decided to start a project centred around creativity and connection.
We only had one week to get to know each other before lockdown set in and everything moved online! We now work together over zoom and are looking forward to working with the community on this project.
We're hoping to craft community and creation through this period of isolation
