(May 2019 – March 2020)
Update – the final sharing of this project was postponed in March 2020 due to COVID-19 and the work has instead been presented in a virtual gallery launched in November 2020.
Time To Create was a year-long programme of free arts activities for over 65’s that supported with generous funding from the ScottishPower Foundation and leading up to a celebration of older peoples’ creativity (originally planned for March 2020). Local older people participated in regular sessions from May 2019 until March 2020 led by artists Phiona Richards, Linzi Bright, Tina Heeley and Ryan Leder at many venues including: Corby Library, Glenmoor House Care Home, Sandalwood Court Care Home, Lakelands Hospice, Seagrave House Care Home, The Autumn Centre and Hazelwood Neighbourhood Centre.
