The Creativity Works Network’s team marked the end of its year’s work in Bristol with a celebration and presentation at Arnolfini on June 26th. The project worked with over fifty women from five different settings across Bristol; Rethink Mental Illness, Bristol Drugs Project, One25, Teign Ward and Eastwood Park Prison, giving them the opportunity to explore, develop and grow by participating in eight week creative courses. The courses were facilitated by Creativity Work’s professional socially-engaged artists.
The women’s creative work was showcased digitally, with the projects’ on-line studios being projected onto the wall of the Arnolfnini Reading Room. A selection of the work was also on show, including ceramic pieces and screen prints. Participants brought their friends and families, who alongside the Networks artists, project partners and Creativity Work’s staff team, enjoyed celebrating their achievements. Around 40 people attended the event, including some interested delegates from the Arts and Health International Conference.
