A group of local carers have put together an innovative exhibition called The ‘Art’ of Caring to highlight the fact that almost three quarters of carers in the UK suffer mental health issues.
The artists have used their creativity, including painting, photography and poetry, to find ways to relax, express emotions, and release the stress of caring. The exhibition also aims to show the amazing work carers do supporting loved ones.
The exhibition is free and will include opportunities to meet the artists and do workshops. It takes place during Carers Week from 11th – 15th June at SPACE, West St, Bristol.
Full programme details can be found on Carers Support Centre’s Facebook page, or by calling 0117 958 9989.
