The Sunflower Project - Co-vid Art Memorial

Please help us by donating to Project Sunflower so that we can do our part in commemorating and celebrating lives lost during this ongoing crisis.

Project Sunflower will create a lasting digital memorial to those who have died during the corona virus pandemic. 

We want to invite everyone, from young children to professional artists, to celebrate the lives of those we have lost during this crisis by painting or drawing a Sunflower, and uploading an image of it to a dedicated memorial website – that will create a lasting legacy, and an uplifting story for everyone to visit and pay their respects for years to come. 

To make this a reality we need to raise £20,000 to design, build and maintain a dedicated website and provide ongoing support.  The robust website will safely house what we hope to be thousands of images and stories. It will be a dramatic, sensitive and thought provoking experience for everyone who visits. 

The website will give people the opportunity to freely upload their artwork, creating a gallery of thousands of original art to share with the world, and ensure that every life lost during the crisis is remembered and treasured. 

We are aiming to launch the project to the public this September. 

In addition to the gallery of original artwork, the website will include signposting,  advice and support for bereavement and mental health. We want this project to promote and actively fund raise for leading mental health charities. 


The SAA ( a professional art supplies and membership organisation based in Newark UK) are helping to lead this project and, alongside some of the UK’s leading artists, are providing their time and support at no cost. 

Art is an amazing way to express our love and support. Please donate what ever you can to help us spread some sunshine.
