Artlink was invited to host a creative workshop at the Giving Back Conference on 3rd March. The conference was hosted by Progress Care Housing Association for residents across their residential sites in the North. Artlink was asked to facilitate a workshop reflecting the five taster sessions which took place in Leeds from November 2012 – January 2013 exploring how residents interact with their local community. The conference workshop took a range of different objects (all spray painted white) and encouraged participants to draw and create their own ideal environment. The workshop was busy, vibrant and creative – resulting in the production of residents very own Sunshine City! The artistic skills of Becky Cherriman and Barney George also enabled participants to explore creative writing and capture their own ideal place through words as well as sculpture.
