Expressions are proud to present a group exhibition that profiles the creativity, diversity and skills of all its participants.
Expressions supports people with Mental Health, Dementia and Learning Disabilities and this exhibition celebrates and showcases that the journey of making art is as important as the final piece.
Collaboration, openness and creative thinking are at the heart of Expressions. The focus for Expressions has always been to make the arts accessible, interactive and a source of wellbeing, encompassing all forms of art – film, ceramics, textiles, photography, and sculpture to name just a few.
The people we support are involved in every aspect of Expressions, from creating the art to organising the show. We also work with professional artists and local organisations to give them invaluable access to the art world and help to get their work exhibition-ready.
Those who participate in Expressions learn new skills which have a positive effect on their mental health and wellbeing. They get a sense of achievement, identity and pride from overseeing their project from beginning to end, which in turn could give them the confidence to achieve other goals and milestones in their lives. Please do come along to view the work and find out more how you can be involved in the Expressions journey.
With thanks to Royds Withy King for their generous support in helping bring Expressions to Centrespace.
