Leading disability charity Enham Trust last week launched its innovative new programme The Art Project to 300 local school children, teachers, professional artists, councillors, and influential members of the community during an official unveiling of the project’s first stunning contributions.
Launched by Enham Trust’s Head of Marketing & Communications Katy Maxwell, with support from Roman Way School’s Head, Sarah Jones – the first school to have contributed to the project – the event saw attendees gather together to enjoy light refreshments, create their own pieces of art, and enjoy the artwork now on display.
The Art Project, created in response to the charity’s activity around their historic Cedar Park development; demolishing the current buildings to make way for a 14-bed Neurological Rehabilitation Unit and 94 accessible homes, enables the Trust to form stronger relationships within the community – with local schools, local artists, and budding artists – in turn presenting the idyllic grounds of the charity as a centre for art and expression.
Sarah Jones, Head of Roman Way School, commented after the event: “I thought it was a lovely, warm, community event and am so glad we now have this very strong bond with Enham Trust.”
Enham Trust currently supports 7,500 disabled and disadvantaged people across the country each year to live lives of choice, control, and independence; The Art Project standing at the forefront of this work, giving people a new way of expressing themselves, growing in confidence, and gaining new skills.
The Art Project is open to anyone, of any age and artistic ability; community groups, businesses, professional artists, and local art enthusiasts.
