Our illustrated poetry collaboration with All Change Arts is back!

We’ve already seen the amazing creativity of residents at Mildmays Care Home in Islington, so it’s no surprise that their latest project resulted in some wonderfully evocative poems, ready to be illustrated by Joanna Layla, Jhinuk Sarkar and Ben Connors.

The Going Places poems were the result of online and outdoor workshops facilitated by Associate Artist Francesca Beard and were inspired by memories and journeys.

These co-created illustrated poems are now printed, framed and mounted on the care home’s walls for all residents, staff and visitors to enjoy.
