EastSide Arts invites as many people as possible to take part in the People’s Pharmacy

The EastSide People’s Pharmacy is a quirky, pilot project based in east Belfast, created with the support of Hewitt & Gilpin Solicitors. The project encourages local residents to create and contribute pieces of art, craft and other small, meaningful items which will be collated in a purpose-built pharmacy installation. The pharmacy will be open on Saturday 5th August at C.S. Lewis Square.  People will be able to visit the pharmacy and receive a “social prescription” created by another east Belfast resident.

If you could give another person one great piece of advice what would it be?  What would you say to someone who is feeling a bit lonely or unhappy to cheer them up?

We are calling out to local arts and community groups, schools, playgroups, summer schemes and individuals explaining ways in which everyone can get involved in the People’s Pharmacy.

We are asking you to think about; What makes you happy? Where is your favourite place to be or thing to do in east Belfast and why?  What song or piece of music makes you happy?  What is your idea of a perfect day?  What is your favourite food?  

Some ideas of contributions are; a photograph, a favourite recipe, a poem, story drawing or painting, a favourite walking route, knitted or crochet gifts and anything else that you think might brighten someone’s day.
