This is a weekly art project that will run from the Foxton Centre and be for anyone living nearby in Avenham to access. It will be mainly adults but we are encouraging people to bring their family/children/support staff with them. The project will be co-produced with the participants but we are taking inspiration from the Harris Collections using the starting point of the 5 ways to wellbeing.
As a team we will see how the project develops and try and get each person working to the best of their ability, honing in on key skills and strengths and encouraging peer to peer support. We will use the first 4 weeks to decide which way to take the project and what we would like to achieve as a team. We have a goal of creating an exhibition for Easter time to coincide with a community event - this will be displayed in either the Foxton or a partner centre that the public use that the Foxton are working with.
