This Is Me

This Is Me is a visual art project taking place in various settings in West Berkshire. Corn Exchange, Newbury supports people to explore different art mediums and create pieces of art reflecting their individuality.

Our Ageing Creatively Programme runs This is Me, a project to bring professional art provision into various settings including care homes and community centres. Each participant creates a piece of art which represents them; it might reflect their interests, a special memory or their character. Participants work once a week with a local artist to explore different visual art mediums over an eight week period. These pieces of work will then be displayed in a special This is Me exhibition.

This is Me aims to reinforce the participant’s sense of identity and individuality and inform meaningful conversations with the people in their lives.

We have just wrapped up a This is Me project with residents from Birchwood Care Home, sessions were facilitated by artist Mandy Monkcom. 

This project is part of our Ageing Creatively programme funded by..
