Elders from the Grange Day Centre are making their own personal stories digitally with Alex Henry. These stories are a theme of a public work of art which will be created in ceramics with Annette Poulson and situated on the outside of our building.
Working on projects close to one’s heart strengthens a sense of personal identity and a sense of community. Making visible what one holds in your head through the use of your hands is a creative act that takes hope, courage, concentration, and trust in the support on offer. A successful piece of work confirms those qualities that people may then be able to apply to other areas of their lives.
This two year project has been financially supported by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
