Caring Bolton - The Community Response to Covid-19
Caring Bolton: The Community Response to Covid-19
Saturday 7 August 2021 to Sunday 2 January 2022 in the Up Front gallery
This exhibition commemorates the different ways that local communities cared for one another during the coronavirus pandemic.
In early 2021 the Museum commissioned Westhoughton photographer Marge Bradshaw to take a series of photographic portraits of individuals who played an important role in Bolton’s community response to Covid-19.
A new, meditative film, mixing images of the natural world with messages from the Mayor of Bolton and faith leaders, invites visitors to reflect on the losses of the past 18 months whilst also looking forward in hope.
