During Carers Week in June 2019, we are running an exhibition at a central Bristol gallery. We’d love your involvement if you have art you would like to show!
This could be paintings, sketches, tapestries, photos, pottery, woodwork, or even poetry. The exhibition will be an amazing opportunity to raise awareness of carers, and to help to identify ‘hidden’ carers who might view the exhibition and then reach out for support.
At carers’ events in 2017 and 2018, there were small exhibitions displaying carers’ photography and artwork. Feedback was extremely positive. Carers reported that they felt very empowered to be able to display their photos and paintings and it was certainly a delight to view!
If you would like to be involved, contact Caroline McAleese, Carers Engagement & Involvement Lead, or Louise Brown, Carers Support Officer: 0117 939 2562
