Weekly Challenge, 19th March 2018 – Guardian Angel
.
Last month we introduced the #Angel20 programme in partnership with Gateshead Council’s Culture Team and saw such brilliant Angel of the North birthday cards that contributed to a fantastic 20th celebration. Moving into this month’s challenge, we’d like you to think about the Angel of the North as a symbol and focus of hope and protection, considering its grandeur and omnipresence. We’d like these thoughts to inspire you to…
.
Write a poem about a guardian angel or your angel. What or who gives you comfort and guidance? Maybe protection and optimism too. This could be a family member, a friend or it could be a spiritual being. It could also be more of a symbol, an object or a thought/memory – whatever you’d like to focus on this week.
.
If you have more time … Draw a representation of your angel to go alongside your poem. This could be an angel as we know it or more of an abstract response.
.
Think
How did writing about your angel make you feel? What did you reflect on? Did it remind you of anything?
