Believe it or not, Tha Seo Math Dhuibh – Good for You has been running for five months now! September has been a fantastic month in the project’s journey where we continue to see the benefits of creative activities in different areas of the community.
Taisbeanadh le Luchd-cùraim òg – Skye & Lochalsh Young Carers Exhibition
Thairis air an cola-deug mu dheireadh, tha taisbeanadh air a bhith againn den obair-ealain agus dealbhan a rinn luchd-cùraim òg thairis air na laithean-saora. Abair gun robh e math an obair aca fhaicinn!
Over the last fortnight, we have had artwork and photographs from the Skye & Lochalsh Young Carers’ Summer Art Project on display at Aros. Some of the young people came along to have a look at their prints in the flesh for the first time at the launch of their exhibition.
The group also had some drinks and nibbles and heard a few words from Kate McMorrine, one of the artists who was involved in the project along with artists Cailean MacLean and Iain Smith.
Skye and Lochalsh Young Carers are now going to have a calendar made with some of their photographs, chosen by the carers themselves. By request, prints of the photos can also be purchased via the charity. All the profits will go to the carers. Keep an eye out on their website or on Facebook for more details.
Teiripe-ealain – Art Therapy @ Bùdhmòr
Tha Gail MacGregor air a bhith ag obair le buidheann de dhaoine nas sine ann am Port Rìgh gach seachdain. Tha a h-uile duine a’ deanamh obair chruthachail steidhichte air turas, agus tha seo a’gabhail a-steach peantadh agus a’ cruthachadh collage. Tha gu leòr còmhradh, craic agus òran no dhà ann cuideachd!
Gail MacGregor is working with some of the residents of Bùdhmòr Care-home. They have spent the last nine weeks working on the theme of ‘Journeys’. Their work has so far incorporated making collages and painting on envelopes. The sessions always spark conversation, craic and the odd sing-song!
