INSPIRING PATHWAYS


After a successful pilot named ‘ Ageless Art,’ we were sponsored by Planed through LEADER funding and the Welsh Government to deliver a project which saw us working throughout Pembrokeshire at residential care homes, sheltered housing, and other outreach locations making a positive impact to fifty fives. From Crymch, Haverfordwest, Milford Haven, Pembroke Dock, Saundersfoot, Neyland, and Fishguard we created a series of workshops looking at artists such as John Piper, Graham Sutherland,  Turner, and Gwen John.


People came together socially, many of whom have complex needs, including PTSD, addictions, and mental health issues. The therapeutic sessions had both creative and social aspects, and also introduced and referred beneficiaries to a wider network of support agencies.

Following landscape walks, talks, and even sculptural workshops we finished with exhibitions at all locations culminating with a final exhibition at The VC Gallery, Haverfordwest.
