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

Hill 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.

As part of the Belong project/programme Roger has worked with story, memory boxes, museum collections, and musical collaborations and helped to develop staff training sessions.

Along with working collaboratively on different pieces in the show, including poetic vinyl words on the gallery wall, he also created the chapbooks on the table in the space, written in response to his time spent at Belong Village in Crewe.

The artist invites you to take a seat at the table, read and reflect in the space. Visit before Sun 12 Jun.
