We commissioned local artist Corrianna Clarke to create ‘Boscombe Bound,’ with funding from Arts Council England. 

‘Boscombe Bound’ is a hand-painted animation depicting Boscombe in Lockdown. It combines snippets of conversations with local residents with animations of the quiet, outdoor spaces of the seaside town. Seagulls land on social distance floor signs, dogs meet while their owners keep apart, and masked people patiently queue.

An ariel view of two dogs on leashes meeting, painted in ink. They are simplified illustrations on a white background.

“It beautifully captures the quiet, everyday moments of lockdown that we’ve all experienced, but it also feels uniquely Boscombe. When the seagulls landed on the sign I realised I hadn’t seen one since last March. This animation has an incredible way of making you realise the similarities and differences in our lockdown experiences.”
