The Enchantment of The Everday Exhibition
This video hosts an exhibition of artwork, the Enchantment of the Everyday, created by service users from the Creative Wellbeing service at Recovery Pathways during the pandemic between 2020-2022.
The Enchantment of the Everyday is representative of finding beauty, magic, and something new in our everyday lives. This exhibition is a collection of many varied pieces of work created by people over several lockdowns.
Here are some words from people we have supported during this time:
“Attending the Creative wellbeing Sessions has been a lifeline for me during the pandemic. Connecting with everyone once a week and taking part in the activities has literally been only connection with the world outside”
“I have really looked forward to the art sessions every week. Even though we are all linking virtually it’s been so therapeutic to have the opportunity to feel part of a creative group”.
“During the pandemic my recovery has at times been devastated by lack of social contact and support services disappearing overnight. Start’s artists go beyond just running the session and make an effort to support you in your personal sphere. Start has been the only consistent support for me this year and I am very grateful for this service.”
“The activities I have learned during this time have been a helpful distraction from the difficulties of life right now”
With thanks to all the people who contributed to this exhibition, connected with us, created something enchanting and supported each other to keep going during this difficult time.
Thanks also to Simon Jones, Wellbeing Arts Tutor, Recovery Pathways, for putting together this video exhibition.
