This exhibition presents over 90 original prints created by participants in a comunity engagement project called Interhuman
Interhuman is a two year project funded by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. During year one participant were introduced to new skills in printmaking and have also been taking part in a research programme to ascertain if impact on wellbeing can be measured. In year two the participants will be brought together in mixed groups based on their enjoyment of making art as opposed to being corralled under socially expedient definitions tied to disability or ethnic origin. Additional support for those already keen to keep printing has been offered through funding from the Halifax Foundation.
Participating groups include –
International Women, Positive Futures, The Link, Action Mental Health, Cranley Lodge, The Cedar Foundation, Jigsaw NI, AGEnda, NDCN, Bangor Men’s Shed and Bangor Art Projects. The artwork created by the participating groups has been exceptional, irrespective of age or ability.
The exhibition launches on the 15th of September and runs to the 30th. The show will then move to Bloomfield Shopping Centre until the 17th of November.
