We invited you to help us co-create our ‘Museum of You’ exhibition, celebrating your creativity, diversity, stories and experiences during the Coronavirus, to go on display at The Beaney when we reopened.

Entries were open to children, adults, community groups and everyone in between. Regardless of whether you were a new creative, continuously curious, or a domestic Picassos – we wanted to hear from you!

We encouraged contributions from the whole community and want the Beaney to reflect everyone’s voice.

Every fortnight we released a new theme to inspire you and give you ideas of art work you could make.

Our 6 themes were…

Be Inspired

Be Green

Be Active

Be Mindful

Be Connected

Be Kind

The exhibition opened Saturday 26 September until Sunday 18 October 2020 and below are a selection of images of your work on display.
