We have a new project to support and improve people’s wellbeing. We are distributing free postcard packs in Govanhill through shops, community groups, and GPs for people to collect.
Each pack contains six commissioned designs that focus on a simple activity or exercise that people can follow to improve their health, relax or be creative.
The cards include simple and accessible practices for yoga, mindfulness, Shiatsu and breathing, along with drawing, poetry and mask-making. Each pack also contains extra postcards for people to give to a friend or neighbour.
We want to invite people to actively join in by making each postcard their very own, by colouring it in, adding to the drawings or writing a motivational note to help during this challenging time. We would be delighted if people would like to share their postcards with the rest of the community after they’ve decorated them, and we have added a free post envelope so they can send them back to us if they wish to do so. We will then use them to make a public art piece in Govanhill for all to enjoy. This will have people’s messages of hope for themselves and the whole community as we get ready to move on from COVID-19.
You can download the postcard images from our site, or get in touch to get your own pack.
