Week Four of my Artist Residency at Sunways Retiring Homes

I know I’ve skipped the third week when I was visiting LifeLine but I will come back to it. There is a lot of work with the images.. 

Here are a few lovely shots from Tuesday afternoon, when I joined social activities for elderly people at Sunways Retiring Homes near Lake Wendouree in Ballarat.

I’ve heard many life stories, and had a very positive feeling about being there with them. I wish my grandparents hadn’t passed away as early as they did…

Under the Floorboards

UnitingCare Ballarat begins a unique artistic project, Under the Floorboards, with the first of 12 artist residences commencing on Monday 30th July.  Under the Floorboards is a collaborative project in which renowned Western District artists will create works based on their experiences at one of the diverse programs provided by UnitingCare Ballarat. The project will culminate in a gala event with an art auction and performance of the works in October 2013 and the proceeds will provide funding for the services.  

The City of Ballarat Arts & Cultural Development is a project partner with UnitingCare Ballarat, extending opportunities for quality arts experiences to all members of the community and providing significant professional development opportunities to local & regional artists.
