It’s been a while….

….since I last wrote for this website. The silence may have seemed strange for some and I can see why. There was a lot of noise about our exhibition at the People’s History Museum, Manchester, between April and June and then it all went quiet shortly after our last arts workshop with service users, carers, parents and children. Then the summer came….and went. Before we knew it, it was September again and we had to start preparing for our new students at our respective institutions.

But it’s now October and in a few weeks the Experiencing the Social Work World exhibition will be resurrected. This time in Sheffield at the Art House as part of the Festival of Social Science. All the artwork and sound recordings will be on display from the 30th of October until the 16th of November, 2017. If you’re in the area please visit. Come see what our participants created and tell us what you think.

If you can’t, however, make it to Sheffield, you might be able to go to Edinburgh where the exhibition will feature as part of the Edinburgh Festival of Social Science and their centenary celebrations. This exhibition will feature art created by social workers and our service users and carers but it will be held for one day only, Saturday 11th of November. For more details please contact Lisa for more information.

If you can’t make either of these events you might like to have a look at a little film we made during the People’s History Museum exhibition. Enjoy.
