Cheadle Hulme High School students have been working with elderly residents from Cawood House, Bryn Haven and Abney Court care homes in Stockport, as well as with artists with learning disabilities to produce artwork relating to memory. The artwork is touring Stockport, with exhibitions at Vernon Park Museum and Abney Court Care Home in Cheadle.
They have been paired with 10 of Cheadle Hulme High School’s Art Ambassadors from Year 7 to 10. They are working together to create a piece of photographic artwork based on the theme of memories.
The sessions include learning new skills such as using a camera and computer software to enhance photos as well as teaching the ambassadors about culture and the memories of the elderly.
“We are really proud of our students and the work they have created and we would love people to come and visit the exhibition”. said Kim Rowley, Head of Photography.
Mark Ward, Chief Executive at Borough Care, said: “Our residents at Cawood House and Bryn Haven have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this project. We are always looking for new and exciting things to inspire our residents and intergenerational projects, such as this one, help enrich the lives of everyone involved. We’re certainly all looking forward to seeing the exhibition now it’s complete.”
If you would like to see the exhibition you can visit Vernon Park Museum, Stockport, between 15th to 25th June 2019 or Abney Court Care Home, Cheadle between 26th June to 1st July 2019.
