Where the Arts Belong: Making Sense (Of It All)

Francisco is among a group of leading artists involved with our Where the Arts Belong project which involves the artists working creatively with people living with dementia. Bluecoat's exhibition Where the Arts Belong: Making Sense (Of It All) showcases the work the artists created during and as a result of their time involved with the project so far.

He has two pieces of work in the show, a beautiful poem about his family’s experience of their grandmother’s ageing and an audio work that features a collage of words and music created from Belong at Home sessions with participants. Sessions were delivered online and at Grosvenor Museum Chester.

Experience his work in the exhibition, open Tue-Sun, 11am-5pm.
