Welcome to small pleasures!

An online festival funded by the Arts Council England and curated by DINA. In May 2020, we asked poets, artists and members of the public to create work reflecting upon the theme of their small pleasures during lockdown. We have commissioned brand new work from 20 artists and 64 members of the public for two online projects, and we couldn’t be more excited to share them!

We’re so grateful to everyone who took part.

Our projects

We asked members of the public to send in a GIF reflecting their current experience. Take a look at the chosen 64 GIFs from around the world!

Ten brilliant poets and visual artists have created a diverse range of work stemming from the theme of small pleasures during lockdown.
