Treasured Possessions Exhibition

Our social groups from Strabane District Caring Services, Caw Nelson Drive Action Group and Learmount Community Development in Park all gathered in The Alley Theatre to celebrate their amazing exhibition. This project was funded by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and provided a dementia friendly session at Tower Museum with the lovely Betty Doherty and her team. The groups then worked with Emmett McSheffrey Artist/Photographer and Patsy Devine Community Dramatis to create beautiful portraits and to capture stories of the members. The exhibition is on until 26th May when it will then transfer to the Millennium Forum Theatre Conference Centre on 2nd June.
