Art materials for Dartmoor older people’s art project

Our grant helped Green Hill Arts in Moretonhampstead on Dartmoor purchase new art materials for their pioneering Art Raft project for a weekly arts-based group for older people who are socially isolated. The group meets at the local Health Centre, who also refers users and exhibits the artwork in their waiting room. Their Chair commented:  “Your funding has made a huge difference to us. We wanted to pilot this project, and you are aware, gathering in funding is a work of art in itself. What has heartened me as much as anything, is the understanding that just knowing that something like Art Raft is in place, heartens people when so many of our local services have gone.”
