Below the Art work ‘Onward and Upwards’ now installed at the hostel in main staircase: created last year over a number of sessions with local residents.

‘That art work is amazing, it’s the first thing I saw when I arrived here, it’s great I’m really impressed.’

Art work poem at Grange Park and ‘Freedom Clock’

Project working with Horizon ‘Art of Recovery’ group and Grange Park residents 2018-2019

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year we have presented ‘The Grange’ Blackpool 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 70 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 poem art work.
