At Central Art Gallery, Ashton, on 1st June 2017, the Live Well Make Art network met to discuss and shape:
‘Growing a social movement committed to ‘a healthier Greater Manchester, where all its people can share the benefits of engaging in and enjoying the arts and creative activities with each other. We want to make our streets, neighbourhoods and communities better places to live’.
Cartwheel Arts worked with Artist Laura Pickerill to deliver a ‘making’ session. Following discussion around key questions, small groups were challenged to build, develop and grow their ideas using the medium of low fi sculpture! Innovation ensued and each group presented their ideas and displayed their work in the gallery space.
Hosted by Gerri Moriarty and Alan Higgins, the event also included films, presentations and shout outs about recent LWMA work, we found out about what the arts, health and community organisations represented are working on and heard more about funding and future plans for LWMA.
We look forward to seeing how ideas develop!
