People trying to find themselves on the clock
This year we have presented ‘The Grange’ with two art works created in collaboration with the Grange Park community and members of the ‘Art of Recovery’ group. The art works include photos of over 100 individuals from the Grange Park area and from the Art of Recovery groups . Community members from Grange Park and people from the recovery community allowed us to take photographs to add to the final piece. We also received a number of super photographic images for inclusion, taken by Donna Hannigan. The ‘Freedom Clock’ art work is now complete and up on the wall, next to the first.
