Project Description

Artwork created by young people in Haverhill in response to the Lockdown 2020

Artist: Ha Dong

Title: Hope

Inspiration: I like the freedom in colours and hope that it can happen now. But sadly, lockdown is just a dark grey colour to most of us. Some live in fear, and some live in danger. Some have to stay abroad because they don’t have permission to come back home. Some have to deal with loneliness, debts and unemployment. Everything just came so quickly and created massive aftermath in the economy, education and public health. Therefore, as an individual, I want to share my hope with others that WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER. Let’s use this time to learn about compassion and responsibility as we always do.

We are the artists who can paint the best pictures after several bad drafts. The sun still shines, and we are still staying here to try our best. Everything will be fine. We trust science. Thanks to the scientists who have been working so hard to create new vaccines. There will be no more unpredicted future. We hope.
