Artist Residency - Care Home

Fields - copyright Elly Strigner 2009

From September 2008 to March 2010 I worked in a care home in Rhyl as an Artist in Residence. (click for a report written about the experience). I worked with the residents there to produce work for the home, which when I arrived was being done up and looked bare and cold. It didn't reflect the character of the place or the people living there.
I hope the residency has made a difference to the atmosphere of the home and the people that live there. It was hard work, but a completely unique opportunity.
