Every Monday, we’ll be posting different ways that you may like to get involved in our Connection Callout and help us connect with the homeless community in Wrexham, find ways to support them, continue important conversations, and share positivity.
Back in November last year, TEAM held a series of art workshops for local homeless participants. Wrexham artists, Adrian Medcalf and Sophia Leadill, taught a variety of art forms including portrait painting and badge making, and the work created was displayed in Wrexham library in a month-long exhibition entitled “Our Voices”.
This week, we wanted to share a quotation one of the participants included in their artwork-
“Don’t treat me as I am invisible, I have a story to tell too, hard part is finding the words.”
We’re aware that it may be daunting to start writing a letter to someone you’ve not met, and that you may be having difficulty in finding the words right now. So this week, we’re encouraging you to share words from other people, that have meaning to you. It could be a quotation that’s chimed with you, lyrics from your favourite song, a poem that you’ve always loved or one you’ve discovered recently and has stuck with you, words that have comforted/motivated/amused you. TEAM Creative Associate, Anastaica, has taken part with her family, and chose one of her favourite poems to share-
Or you may not want to take the form words at all – we’re also encouraging you to connect via art. Tonight is the last in the series of Grayson’s Art Club, Grayson Perry’s wonderfully inspiring show full of ways to unlock your creativity! You can catch it at 8pm on Channel 4, with all of the previous episodes on All 4.
If you'd like to share anything this week, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, or send it to-
