Travelling art exhibition

Lost and Found, a travelling art exhibition will be found at William Garfitt House, 116 High Street, Boston, from Monday, August 7, to Monday, August 14.

Artists Carol Parker and Ernie Butler have collaborated on an Arts Council England-funded project to encourage arts engagement with older adults in care and those living with dementia in Boston, Spalding, Grantham and Bourne.

Following 40 participatory art sessions in four care homes involving 62 residents, a touring exhibition of work by residents and project artists is travelling around care homes, libraries, community venues and festivals both in Lincolnshire and further afield. 

The exhibition hopes to raise awareness of issues faced by older adults in care, including ageism, stereotype, isolation, identity, stigma of dementia.

It is available to other interested venues; email carolparker1@live.co.uk for available dates.
