Community Outreach

Community Outreach

A new project for the Barber

Art helps us connect with other people and make sense of our experiences. It can inspire and delight us and spark our curiosity.

Working in partnership with trained artist facilitators, residents and staff we will design resources and workshops that consider personal responses to specific artworks and open up conversations about our everyday experiences to unlock memories and stories. Sessions will be participant-led in a way that is appropriate for each setting and each care community will take a unique journey during our time together.

As the healthcare sector continues to feel the effects of the pandemic, whilst seeking to navigate its recovery from it, we hope this collaborative outreach project will uplift, inspire and bring value to all participants in both expected and unexpected ways.
