Check out the Wonderful Art Being Shared in Solidarity With Manchester

We are all shocked and saddened by last night’s terrorist attack in Manchester. Our hearts and our prayers go out to the city, the families affected, and to the victims, who were simply enjoying an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena.

One tiny comfort we can take from the tragedy is Manchester’s response to it. People have been offering strangers rooms, hotels have been providing shelter; and countless taxis have been giving people free rides.

On social media, stories of kindness and generosity have been emerging, proving that no matter what, Manchester is united and the country is behind them – as you can see from these tweets:

Along with this, artists and illustrators took to Instagram to share the wonderful work they’d created to show solidarity with the city. Touchingly, much of the art included a symbol of hope, inspired by Ariana Grande’s trademark bunny ears.

 

Absolutely heartbreaking. What is happening to our world 😞#prayformanchester #arianagrande #manchester

This is just a small selection of the art that’s been shared, but every single piece is a symbol of the support for Manchester during this sad time.

While there are some who will try to divide us through hate, it will only make us stronger and more united.
