A civic reception for Fresh Art@
Following the successful
exhibition at the Bath Fringe Arts Festival, Councillor Ian
Gilchrist held a civic reception at the Guildhall in Bath last
week, to honour the Fresh Art@ team.
This event celebrated not only the inspirational work that has
been created, but the journey taken by of all the artists involved
with the program.
Fresh Art@ is a group that supports people with mental health
issues, using art as a support structure. The group is run jointly
by our Trust and Creativity Works.
This project was developed with the idea that creativity can
make a significant difference to people's lives by inspiring and
supporting them to have fun and be creative. Working with
Creativity Works artists, Trust art therapists and volunteers, this
project has enabled participants to realise their creative
potential, increase independence and create routes to education and
Fresh Art@ is open to service users, carers and staff who work
within out Trust. If you would like to be involved or find out
more, please contact Fresh Art@ Worker Nathaniel Burgess on
You can view the Fresh Art@ exhibition at the Guildhall. The
exhibition is free to enter and will run until 11 August 2015.
