The Home Service Project
The sign is not the soul of this wonderful three year Arts For Health and KEAP (Kernow Education Arts Partnership) programme of work bringing great art to older people in care homes funded by Arts Council England and The Baring Foundation.
I'm proud and delighted to be a working artist based at Tremethick House in Redruth. Over the next few weeks I will be gathering memories, thoughts, experiences and stories from residents that recall their occupations over the years. This rich seam of experience will then be turned into poems and performance pieces. Follow this blog and see where it leads.
“Nor, indeed, are we to give our attention solely to the body; much greater care is due to the mind and soul; for they, too, like lamps, grow dim with time, unless we keep them supplied with oil.” (Cicero) - See more at: http://www.artsforhealthcornwall.org.uk/projects/home-service#sthash.LjSNZFjZ.dpuf
