After a year spent working with the lovely people of Clifton Estate, it was heartwarming to see so many people come together for the opening of Creative Connections at Nottingham Contemporary on the 19 July 2017.
It had been a difficult project, with my father being in intensive care for months during part of it, and I can’t quite believe it all came together so well. I got quite overwhelmed with emotion during my thank you’s!
Working with the young people of the Farnborough Academy was a real privilege and I hope they too were proud of the work they presented.
The exhibition was opened with lovely speeches by Sam Thorne, Director of Nottingham Contemporary and Liz Smith, Director of Participation and Learning, National Portrait Gallery.
