February 2022 - July 2023
Shekinah supports vulnerable people sleeping rough or in emergency accommodation. Between February 2022 and July 2023 I was the Artist in Residence at the centres Saturday ‘Soup Run’. In this role I engaged clients with art to support their creative expression and wellbeing.
“The art makes me feel good – better.” “Coming in here I feel chilled out and inspired. The art made me feel relaxed and happy” (client annon).
“I was very, very touched this Saturday, where we had a woman who was very active in the art activity. She gained so much from it. Quite often people find it easier to open dialogue when they're not making that direct eye contact and they're doing something” (volunteer).
