How LS Lowry’s hometown endured lockdown

Welcome to Days Like These, a major online exhibition exploring how LS Lowry’s hometown of Salford endured lockdown.

Here, some of Salford’s 245,000 residents share their experiences of COVID-19 in the form of stories, artwork, films, performances, poems and photographs.

And it’s not too late to submit your work. We’ll be adding to the collection during the life of the exhibition. (The next upload of work will take place on 19 August.)
