Who Cares? A Unique Exhibition of Printmaking by Family Carers
Who Cares? A Unique Exhibition of Printmaking by Family Carers… Opens at The Whistler Gallery in Dance East on the Ipswich waterfront, from the 26th April 2019.
The idea for the ‘Who Cares?’ exhibition came from the local arts organisation Oyster Community Press CIC, who run the Tower Street Print project in Ipswich.
The artwork for the Who Cares? exhibition was made over a period of ten weeks by family carers being supported by Suffolk Family Carers, at weekly printmaking workshops, and ‘explores their caring roles with candour, humour and passion’.
The exhibition runs to the end of this year’s Carers Week, 10th to the 14th of June. Entrance is free. After the exhibition the artwork is being returned to the carers who created it.
As part of the exhibition the Tower Street Print Project wish to have leaflets out in the gallery for people to take home, covering all aspects of health and wellbeing, from organisations who support family carers. Organisations are…. ‘welcome to take leaflets up to the Whistler Gallery from the 26th April onwards and to put them out’.
The Whistler Gallery is open when the Dance East building is open, usually from 9 am to 5 pm during the week.
Alison is open to ideas, from organisations that support family carers, about including an event at the exhibition during carers week.
