Include Me In Tasters

Artlink invited artists Bryony and Barney George to run five taster sessions across the Independent Living Residences in partnership with Progress Housing.

The project worked with learning disabled individuals and people living with mental health issues, exploring sound, drawing, light projection, painting and texture all under the canopy of a red gazebo!

The aim of the workshops was to consult with residents about how they would like to take part in longer term series of workshops and if so, which artistic media they would like to explore. The project was developed in consultation and with the dedicated support of Peter Loosemore, the Tenant Involvement Co-ordinator.

“Bryony and Barney were as brilliant as usual, it is certainly their adaptability and flexibility that have ensured that no matter what the circumstances or conditions have been like, each workshop has been successful.” - Tenant Involvement Co-ordinator

Date: November 2012- January 2013
