Post Quarantine (letters to open when this is all over) is a mail art project created by Nikky Lyle, Em Williams and Claire Medcalf. It’s a chance to show off your creativity and feature in an exhibition in the near future (fingers crossed).
The project aim is to give us something to do now that helps with our wellbeing, capture how we’re feeling in these strange times, and create something for us all to look forward to. Here’s how …
Step 1. Choose or make your perfect writing paper or postcard. You can design, doodle, illustrate, paint, calligraph, collage – whatever you want as long as it fits through the letterbox.
Step 2. Write to your future self (beyond all the phases of lockdown). It can be a long reflective letter about how you’re feeling now or a simple pledge on the back of a postcard listing all the things you want to do when you’re free from social distancing.
Step 3. Make it funny. Make it serious. It’s totally up to you. Just remember that your letter will be read by other people.
Step 4. Include your contact details somewhere on your letter so we can keep you updated about the exhibition.
Step 5. Send to: Post Quarantine, Unit 34786, PO Box 6945, London W1A 6US.
Step 6. If you have Instagram you can follow @_postquarantine where your letter might make an appearance.
Step 7. Wait for the Post Quarantine exhibition party.
