Create to Connect – Eden
Eden District Council is working alongside local artist, Simon Whalley, on a community art project called Create to Connect. The project will focus on the sharing of how involvement in art and all things creative is helping people cope with the Covid-19 pandemic. The culmination of the project will be the development of an online showcase of the creative work individuals have been involved with over the last few months.
