In response to COVID-19, Towner partnered with the South Downs National Park on an exciting project that continues the success of our creative kit bags with a new series inspired by our local landscape.
Over 3 months of lockdown, we delivered 1000 kit bags to 540 households across Eastbourne, Hailsham and Seaford, working with 14 local community partners to reach individuals, families and groups, locally.
We commissioned artist-illustrator Somang Lee to design activities sheets themed around nature, the outdoors and the raw materials: Clay & Chalk (Spring), and Water and Charcoal (Winter).
Somang’s activity sheets use the South Downs National Park and artworks from the Towner collection to inspire experimenting and making with natural materials. Exploring natural cycles, environments and seasons, she encourages us to connect with nature and creativity, both indoors and out.
These activity sheets were made possible thanks to the generous support of the South Downs National Park Authority.
