Art4Change is a project aimed at giving disadvantaged sections of the community the opportunity to gain self-confidence, transferable skills and to feel valued, by creating and exhibiting art work that draws attention to a wide range of social issues.
The initial exhibition focused on the increasing issue of homelessness and the art work was created by people who have been homeless. This is aimed at enabling people involved to have their say, maybe for the first time, about how homelessness has affected them personally.
The project has evolved into a new interactive exhibition on mental health and homelessness. Come and join the conversation at Cabot Circus from 8 - 14 May.
