WE ARE VERY SORRY THAT DUE TO CORONAVIRUS THIS EXHIBITION HAS HAD TO BE CANCELLED. WE WILL PUBLISH THE NEW DATES (2021) AS SOON AS THEY ARE AVAILABLE.
‘Light in the Darkness’ is an exhibition of artwork by clients of The Independence Trust and will be on display in our Education Centre. They have promised a wonderful array of media including sculpture, poetry, collage , wycinanki, pastels, oil and acrylic paintings, much of which was created during the difficult lockdown period of Covid–19. Together, they symbolise the different shades of light and dark an individual can feel living with a mental health diagnosis. There will also be a Covid safe ‘Virtual Reality’ experience and a chance to buy handmade, original crafts for Christmas.
Independence Trust is a registered charity to support adults with mental illness throughout the county of Gloucestershire. They run a triage, assessment and recovery service for clients referred in by GP’s, Mental Health Services or self-referrals. Their remit is to provide social inclusion to individuals suffering with a severe MH diagnosis. This can involve one to one support into training, education, volunteering or employment, signposting and participation in their peer group activities.
OPEN: Friday – Sunday 10am – 5pm
