Young people in care get creative

We recently attended a fantastic exhibition of artwork in Darlington – all made entirely by young people who have experienced the care system.

The Head, Heart and Hands exhibition is being run by Blue Cabin, a local arts organisation working to connect young people in care with the community through creativity, and build their relationships with the organisations and adults in their lives. The foster carers and residential workers that Blue Cabin have all found it to be a hugely positive creative experience, and they’re looking to work together even more in the future.

Working in partnership with the local council, Creative Darlington and other cultural organisations in the area, the project is helping looked after children and young people to get involved in arts and creativity.

The artwork will be on display at the Cornmill Centre in Darlington until 4pm on Saturday 18th March. So pop along for yourselves and have a look at the great work!
