Play your part in the Radical Kindness Project

Date published: 07 April 2021

Local Artists May Wild Studio have been commissioned by the charity Action Together CIO to create the Radical Kindness Project, a participatory public artwork which will be installed in Oldham town centre in May.

Michael Wild and Rebecca May, of May Wild Studio, are artists who specialise in working on community-based projects.

Their latest project involves collecting stories about acts of kindness shown in the local community during the lockdown period, which will later be developed into a permanent art display in the centre of Oldham.

During the Covid pandemic, Oldham’s community local heroes have taken many different forms.

Who or what are your local heroes?

Charities, community groups, teachers, neighbours, delivery drivers, friends, volunteers, pets, a postperson, walks in nature or someone involved at the local park could all be featured in the artwork.

Once you've found your moment of community kindness, create your photo, drawing or story and email it to: and you can be a part of this exciting project.
