Scottish Year of Stories 2022

Art in Healthcare developed a programme of twelve events across four venues with the Scottish Poetry Library in May and June as part of  'The Scottish Year of Stories' . Working with poets identified by the Scottish Poetry Library and visual artists, this project brought pieces from our collection 'alive'. At each venue a work from our collection provided the inspiration for creative workshops to create artworks and poetry celebrating Scotland's nature and landscape.

    This project has brought artists and poets together to deliver art and written word workshops for health and wellbeing, working with care providers across Scotland.     

The images shown here are from a workshop with carers     at Vocal, in Dalkeith. Thanks to the Community Stories Fund for support.
