Here at INYBB we love teaming up with 64 Million Artists. They are all about everyone connecting and sharing through creativity, even it they don't consider themselves to be creative. They firmly believe there is an artist in everyone and that being creative is good for us. We couldn't agree more.
In 2020 we kicked off our online Lost Letters campaign by inviting the 64 Million Artist network to send us a Mundane Memoir - a creative response to a task that kept them busy during lockdown. We had some amazing responses and will be collating them all into an online exhibition.
In 2019 our Dear Friend campaign requested handwritten letters from the network, that shared an experience and offered advice to someone who may be going through something similar. We sometimes forget how amazing, inspiring and resilient human beings can be when facing difficult situations in life, from bereavement to moving to a new area, being a new parent or carer to suffering from anxiety or living with an illness. Sharing lived experience of something can offer support, hope and positivity to others and make a real difference to helping them get through something similar. These experiences were put into words and shared with someone who needed them.
