Sir Tom Make It Blue Campaign
Artists MakeItBlue – in support of the NHS
Every Thursday night landmarks and iconic buildings across the UK are lighting blue in a massive gesture of thanks and support to the NHS and all those working at the frontline to fight the pandemic. With the health of the whole nation under threat, the skyline is glowing blue to shine the light of hope in a dark time.
The LightItBlue initiative is one strand of the wider MakeItBlue campaign - which encourages people everywhere to share their own messages of gratitude and solidarity to the NHS – from the safety of their own homes.
We’re inviting artists to interpret those messages of thanks and respect in their own unique and beautiful way, so they can be displayed and shared digitally with the world. Send your work to info@W1curates.com and see it emblazoned on our screens. Let’s use the power of compelling images to thank all those who are working to save lives.
Captain Sir Thomas Moore, originally from Keighley in West Yorkshire, had initially set out to raise £1,000 for the NHS.
He eventually raised £32,794,701 and was knighted by the Queen in July.
Artist Mr Sly captures the legacy of one of Britain’s greatest heroes.
Rest in peace Captain Sir Thomas Moore
