Away Being closes the door

Does what all great exhibitions do…promotes thought & surprise & great conversations – thank you.

The latest fantastic comment about Away Being ,our cross arts pop-up exhibition that sadly came to a close on 10th January. Way after closing time Ian Paterson, the photographer whose images started the whole project, was still chatting to our last visitors.

As curator I loved welcoming visitors and watching them take in the eclectic exhibits with a mug of tea in their hand. I heard so many moving stories and some shared their tears.

We received so many postcards and our community envelope wall doubled in size. Our three simple questions kept our guests thinking and many picked up a coloured pencil for the first time in years.

Thank you to all the volunteers at St Margaret’s House who helped us to Thrive. We couldn’t have done this without you, its what ‘community’ is all about.
