My story

[p]WHAT IS IT?[/p][p]'CHILDREN OF SALISBURY - LIFE AFTER LOCKDOWN'[/p][p]IS A PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAIT SERIES DOCUMENTING THE YOUNGER GENERATION OF SALISBURY AND HOW EXPERIENCING LOCKDOWN LED THEM TO DISCOVER WHAT WAS REALLY IMPORTANT TO THEIR LIVES.[/p][p]Salisbury photographer Gemma Brunton is inviting families with children aged thirteen and under living in Salisbury to apply to be included in this symbolic portrait series. They will have their portrait included in a special archival, strictly limited edition hardback book, each one signed and numbered with a copy presented to The Duchess of Cambridge (Patron of Action For Children), The Earl of Pembroke (President of The Stars Appeal) and The Bishop of Salisbury.[/p][p]This is an opportunity to be a part of a project that will grow in significance in years and generations to come as the children of Salisbury grow up and reflect on how Coronavirus shaped them. These portraits will chronicle how, despite challenge, upheaval and restrictions on their daily lives, these children learnt to embrace the positivity of everyday pleasures we all have come to take for granted.[/p][p]The project aims to capture children from all backgrounds, ages and areas of Salisbury and to represent Salisbury's diverse community.[/p][p]The final book will become a body of portraits that document a generation of children in the wake of this unprecedented event in their lives, and how the effect of lockdown has shaped their view on what is important to them and potentially how they live their future lives.[/p][p]It's the little things - the everyday pleasures that have taken on a new significance while we've been housebound - this could be a special hug with a grandparent or family member they haven't been able to see, perhaps they've discovered a new love of baking or board games (or even their daily workout with Joe Wicks!), it could be the joy of being able to play their favourite sport again, or even go back to school. Maybe they've discovered a new hobby that may turn into a skill, that may eventually turn into a career, or they've bonded with a sibling who previously they had a tricky relationship with. Maybe their special 'thing' might be to hang out with their best friend or play on the beach. There are many scenarios where the restrictions of lockdown have actually opened up new passions, reignited old ones or simply inspired a love of the familiar activities of family life.[/p][p]For more details about how it works, please visit: [url=https://www.childrenofsalisbury.co.uk/how-it-works]https://www.childrenofsalisbury.co.uk/how-it-works[/url][/p][p]In return for your child's inclusion in the book you will be asked to make a donation of at least £45 to The Stars Appeal Hospital Heroes and Action For Children, both of which are actively raising funds to provide support for those affected by the crisis of Covid-19.[/p][p][br][/p]
