Announcing the Croydon Creative Carers’ exhibition, Saturday 13th January
The Croydon Creative Carers’ exhibition will be open on Saturday 13th January 2018 from 13:00 – 15:00 in the Studio Space at 2-4 Park Street, CR0 1YE.
Local mental health charity Studio Upstairs has been running a new Creative Carers’ group in Croydon, funded by Croydon Council’s Community Fund and led by qualified professionals. The two hour sessions gave carers the space and time to invest in their well-being and widen their support network.
To celebrate their achievements, Studio Upstairs is holding a special exhibition, open to the public on Saturday 13th January from 1-3pm, showcasing artwork produced by the Creative Carers over a 12 week period. This is a great opportunity to learn more about what we do, enjoy some art and socialise in the local community. It is also a chance for carers to come along and see if they would like to involved in the next group.
The Creative Carers’ group is a welcoming environment where people can work in a range of artistic media alongside others in a safe, therapeutic setting. We hope that as many Croydonians as possible will be able to come along and find out more.
