A local arts project supported by Waverley Borough Council, sets out to show that taking part in creative activities can have a positive impact on our mental wellbeing, whatever the weather may bring!
Waverley Borough Council has teamed up with Creative Response, an arts based charity working with vulnerable adults, to deliver a major arts and health project called ‘Whatever the Weather’.
Surrey based artist, Becci Kenning has been leading the project in Farnham, as part of a wider cross-arts programme funded by Arts Partnership Surrey.
Becci has been working with ten local artists based at the centre since March. Together, they have been exploring the patterns and textures of everyday life in Farnham. The project has culminated in an exhibition of 3D studies hanging within the glass entrance atrium of Farnham Maltings. Each artist has brought their unique piece together in a collaborative piece of hanging art. The exhibition will be showing until the 12 August, and is a fantastic addition to Creative Responses’ 25 year anniversary celebrations.
In addition, a poem "Whatever the weather in Farnham; Wearing other people's shoes" written by Liz and Zena will be available to be read at the Creative response website https://www.creativeresponsearts.org
