‘more than a-part’ is envisaged as a portrait of the town in (and as it emerges from) the restrictions relating to Covid-19.

It is being organised by Transported, the local arts body operated by the University of Lincoln.

Townspeople are invited to share their stories from lockdown and thoughts on who or what they are grateful for.

“It is a chance to celebrate acts of kindness, special relationships and treasured spaces,” a spokesman for Transported said.

Participants can contribute to the piece simply through conversation, but are also welcome to create elements to be incorporated into it.

“The resulting artworks will form a ‘tapestry’ of individual experiences using cyanotypes, an early Victorian photographic process,” the spokesman continued. “This will form a lasting testament to Boston’s lockdown experience and the people and places who helped residents through this time.”

The conversations will take place by phone, FaceTime, or Skype with the project producer, Steven Hatton of Electric Egg.

To get involved, email Steve on [email protected] or message Transported on its social media platforms.

The artwork is part of Transported’s CREATE-on programme, a way of helping people in Boston and South Holland stay creative during the lockdown – and for free. To get involved, visit the Current Projects section of www.transportedart.com
