Art sessions & exhibition (cont.)

Participants reported that they greatly enjoyed and benefitted from the sessions. Here are just a few of the many positive comments we received:

I have a lot of stress and anxiety, and doing the class was respite from this.

I feel like I’m me for these couple of hours. It’s a long time since I’ve felt like me.

It has been so good to meet other carers, because we all understand each other’s situations and what we are all going through.

Sometimes you don’t see the value of something like this until you take part. There’s such a feeling of shared experience, knowing that carers are all in the same boat.

Carers indicated that they would be grateful if a project like this ran again, and this is something we aim to provide should more funding become available.

The creations made during the online art sessions were exhibited in our office over two days in March, with carers coming along to view them over coffee and cupcakes. We have added photos and a slideshow here for those who were unable to attend.
