Take a look at them, we guarantee that you won't regret it: they will charm you, make you laugh, cry or just nod your head in recognition.
They represent a precious record of children and young people's experience of the pandemic, and we are very proud and privileged to have received them.
Children of Lockdown was run in partnership with local novelist Paul McVeigh, winner of the Polaris Prize for his book The Good Son, about growing up in Ardoyne in the 80s, during the Troubles.
The project was supported by North Belfast Strategic Good Relations Programme through Community Relations Council (AYE) and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland (Paul McVeigh).
You can watch Paul's online readings for Ardoyne Youth Enterprise on our YouTube Channel.
