EastSide People's Pharmacy

EastSide Arts has developed a quirky pilot project called EastSide People’s Pharmacy. Supported by 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 want to contribute something think about:
  • What one great piece of advice would you give to someone?
  • What would you say to someone who is feeling a bit lonely or unhappy to cheer them up? 
  • 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, painting, a favourite walking route, knitted or crochet gifts or anything else that you think might brighten someone’s day. 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.
