Youngsters have been invited to unleash their creative talents to show how they and the borough have been coping with the coronavirus crisis.
The Young Newham Story project is looking for people up to 25 to show their skills through drawings, photographs, paintings, cake decorations, t-shirt prints, doodles, models, or anything creative that represent how lockdown has affected everyday life.
Alternatively, youngsters can share one line of their own words or a quote that means something to them.
Mayor Rokhsana Fiaz said: “The current situation has touched the lives of people across Newham and has brought about a community spirit that we haven’t seen for a generation.
“Families and neighbours are showing great acts of kindness towards each other and what better way to tell that story than through the eyes of our talented young people.”
