Create to Connect

Create to Connect, Day 19 – Cards for Connection

Holborn Community Association offers arts, sport and social projects for the local community in Holborn, London. HCA works with everyone from under 5’s to over 90’s, bringing people together to have fun, learn new skills and get better connected. Be inspired by their Cards for Connection project and create a card or picture to make someone in your community smile.

Do
Create your own Card for Connection. Design and decorate a card however you like – you could use paper, card, material – you could draw, cut, stick, make, paint or photograph…
Make your card bright and cheerful, then write a positive message, poem or quote inside, and give it away. You could post it through a neighbours door, send it to the staff at your local hospital, leave it outside for someone to find, or share it with friends online on social media, it’s up to you!

Join Hazel from HCA for a live card making workshop on Instagram at 1pm today, 19th May! Find and follow HCA on Instagram here.

If you have more time … 
Could you make more than one card? Maybe you could make mini cards for your whole street or block?

Think 
Who in your community would like to hear from someone else? How does it feel to reach out to someone else with something positive?

Share
Share your work in a way that works for you – online or offline. You could join our friendly Facebook group, keep a journal, share in a WhatsApp group, with your friends and family, or on social media. The choice is yours.
