People living in one care village have worked with artists to learn new skills including sculpture, painting and dance
Residents at a care village in Cheshire have been exploring their creativity and trying out everything from expressive dance to sculpture and storytelling.
This spring, the Belong care village in Crewe organised an eight-week programme, which involved artists in residence delivering workshops for residents. The programme was part of three-year project, Where the Arts Belong, run in partnership with Liverpool’s Bluecoat centre for contemporary arts and Arts Council England. It aims to assess how to effectively bring art into care environments.
