Last October, Brick by Brick Communities hosted an art competition in celebration of Black History Month with the theme ‘Covid & Me’. This was a fun and creative opportunity for people to express their feelings about the effect Covid-19 has had on their lives and wellbeing.
The competition was entirely Covid safe, as the entries were either scanned or photographed and then emailed to Brick by Brick. The entries were then judged by Dean Russell, M.P. for Watford, and Watford Football Club legend Luther Blissett in early December.
All winners received a voucher and will have their art displayed at Watford Museum as part of its permanent collection about Covid-19 in the town! You can check out the winning entries below.
Brick by Brick Communities is a community interest company with the admirable aim of fighting poverty and inequality in all forms. This project, funded by a grant from Watford Community Housing’s Community Fund, is just one of their many projects. Others include Carnival in a Box, Winter Warriors, and Watford Black History.
