‘Soul Searching’ Catholic Care exhibit at the Arts & Mental Health Exhibition

The organisation CuratorSpace are coordinating an exhibition of mental health related artwork, which will be on display in the 2nd floor galleries at Dewsbury Museum throughout the first quarter of the year, from the 15th January 2016 until 31st March.

Catholic Care will be exhibiting a selection of pictures to illustrate our work supporting children and young people using the creative arts.

These pieces of work are created by children with the support of our worker Mathew Kearns, Mathew uses art with children and young people as a way of promoting emotional well being and helping children express trauma and difficult emotions. Mathew supports children who are managing loss and bereavement as well as those living in difficult circumstances in families where parents struggle with addiction and poverty.
