#CreateShareRemember – Artwork unveiled on Saturday August 21st 2021 in Bute Park, Cardiff
Share your treasured memories and raise money for City Hospice!
Thank you so much to Coles Funeral Directors for making #CreateShareRemember happen. Coles Funeral Directors and Nathan Wyburn are working together in aid of City Hospice to create a bespoke piece of art that will be bright, colourful collage featuring pictures from our community.
Nathan Wyburn has created similar pieces for Prince Charles, Mariah Carey, Dame Shirley Bassey, NHS key workers, and more in his famous collection.
This bespoke piece of art titled ‘The Bigger Picture’ will be revealed in Bute Park on Saturday 21st August 2021.
Occupational Therapist at City Hospice, Rachel Roberts, explains why she is supporting the campaign:
With so many people experiencing challenging times over the past 18 months, the #CreateShareRemember campaign, has offered an opportunity to remember and record some of the happy times brought about due to the pandemic. At the same time it’s supporting the work of City Hospice who have continued to support the residents of Cardiff through adversity.
Picking an image was one of the hardest things to do- so I ended up submitting a few to represent my year-
- Friendships were forged through the delivery of afternoon tea packages on VE day, to our neighbours, which were enjoyed in the sunshine in the street ( along with laughter, music and a sense of togetherness despite the distance between us).
- The lack of physical contact was difficult for my mum who was missing her “cwtch” from her growing grandson- so he made a cushion out of one of his tops that she could squeeze to her hearts content until we were back together.
Each of us have memories of what the past 18 months has meant to them- whether that is the memory of a loved one, new friendships made, learning new skills, getting to grips with Zoom! This campaign offers the opportunity to capture those memories and how better than recording them together in a piece of work by the amazing Nathan Wyburn.
A big thank you to Coles for offering this opportunity to reflect on the achievements of the past 18 months.
Coles Funeral Directors have chosen a fantastic way in which to support City Hospice. The ability to choose and share an image that is important to the individual truly reflects the ethos of both the family run firm and that of City Hospice.
Whatever image you choose, every memory submitted will feature in the ‘Bigger Picture’ and be publicly displayed in Bute Park, Cardiff, from Saturday 21 August. But to make sure you’re included all images will need to be received by Thursday 29 July.
