The Travelling Art Tent

"Floating Away"

The Travelling Art Tent is an older people's community project that was created with participants from three residential homes and a day centre in the Stockport area supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

Working with artist Stacey Coughlin and volunteers from Arc, participants collaborated to create artwork to be then curated together into an immersive and interactive 'exhibition space' that toured each of the organisations and residential homes involved.

This 'sculptural' exhibition space, artwork and documentation was exhibited in the Arc Community Gallery and then for a final celebration at Stockport Art Gallery from 22nd February - 22nd March 2014.

The Travelling Art Tent has since visited various other care homes, exhibitions, festivals, schools and other organisations.
