Coronavirus and caring for our community

As you all know, we are experiencing uncertain and unprecedented times – and we think it is important to share with you how The John Byrne Award will be responding.

The John Byrne Award team will be working from home for the next wee while, but we are still committed to sharing the wonderful creativity of Scotland. As many of our human connections and communities are set to temporarily dissolve, we believe that it is more important than ever to create and engage in virtual communities online, to express oneself and to reach out to others.

The John Byrne Award will continue to act as a platform for creativity and discussion, and we would like to encourage you to keep sharing your work (as long as you can do so while following medical advice) even in these difficult times.

We promise to keep on posting your poignant, thought-provoking, moving, shocking, hilarious and weird creations, in all their glory!

Niall, Jade and Rachel,
The John Byrne Award team. Xx
