Polish Centre Films

Artworks invited artists Bryony Pritchard and David Lindsay to develop an arts and health project working with a group of older people based at the Polish Centre in Bradford from October to December 2012. This project was commissioned by Bradford and Airedale Teaching and Primary Care Trust to explore health themes such as social isolation, depression and keeping active through visual arts and movement activities.

The 10 workshops focused on a number of themes and activities, which aimed to increase awareness and involvement of the following areas: health, movement, social interaction, photography and animation. During the project the group was taken on a research trip to Bradford Media Museum to inspire them for making their own films and animations with their own storylines.
