Due to the Pandemic we weren’t able to host our usual exhibition and although we have had an online version [see that here], its not quite the same as being able to see the artworks in person.
It is a partnership project that creates artwork to enliven NHS environments involving Creativity Works, Avon & Wiltshire Mental Health NHS Partnership Trust (AWP), Virgin Care, Bath Mind, The Holburne Museum, No 1. Royal Crescent, The American Museum, service users, carers, volunteers and local artists.
The 12-week project facilitated by artist Barbara Disney, was carried out in museums and then online this year and the artworks on display have been inspired by the objects and exhibitions on display at the museums.
Everyone involved in Fresh Art@ believes that creativity can make a significant difference to people’s lives by inspiring and supporting them to have fun, be creative, learn new transferable skills, improve health and wellbeing and connect with community opportunities.
