Arty Generations Celebrate in Bangor!

Arty Generations Celebrate in Bangor!

As part of LGNI's Arts Council funded Arty Generations Project members of the Caremark Bangor Memory Café and their carers joined pupils from Bloomfield Primary School to take part in monthly intergenerational arts sessions.  Local artist Trisha McNally facilitated these arts session enabling the pupils and memory café members to work together to create pieces of art that they could take home each week.

A variety of arts mediums were used each week but most importantly the arts was used to connect people to improve health and well-being and alleviate isolation and loneliness.

Just before the end of term everyone joined to celebrate the projects success, showcase the artwork created and enjoy each others company.  Marci from Caremark presented the school pupils with a fantastic scrapbook full of memories and moments as part of their sessions!

This innovative partnership created between Caremark and Bloomfield Primary School was developed by LGNI's Lynne B and with such positive feedback and enthusiasm from all involved we hope their link will continue!
