Derventio Housing Trust’s Growing Lives project works with people facing tough times such as homelessness, ill health, history of drug, alcohol use or offending.
Working with contemporary visual artist Olivia Penrose Punnett, participants will be guided through Derby Museum and Art Gallery’s collection, including Joseph Wright’s paintings, to pick work which resonates with them personally. They will be tutored to translate their feelings about that piece through mono-printing and projection. Photographer Jon Legge and video artist Gavin Repton will work with participants to document the project.
Their work will change theirs and others’ perceptions through exhibition.
