STILL PARENTS WORKSHOPS CONTINUING

 

The monthly artist-led, art-making sessions will be continuing starting early 2022.. Contact Lucy Turner lucy.turner@manchester.ac.uk for details.

“Art helps us access and express parts of ourselves that are often unavailable to other forms of human interaction. It flies below the radar, delivering nourishment for our soul and returning with stories from the unconscious.”

Grayson Perry

"This has been better than a counselling session. It was so good to talk to others who understand" (Participant)

"We got more time to talk to people as we were working...I realised tonight that others have the same feelings as me. It made me feel less alone" (Participant)

"It's a tough time for all our bereaved families, human contact is so important. Experiencing a stillbirth is so complex with so many multidimensional needs and changes lives forever. The feedback I've had and the actual art work that I have seen is poignantly beautiful and moves me more than words can say, they take my breath away and I can see the power of art in action."

(Bereavement Midwife)
