HACKNEY ARTS CHARITY CELEBRATES 30-YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH EXHIBITION

Source By: Studio Upstairs

This exhibition by artists from the therapeutic arts community Studio Upstairs celebrates 30 years of the diverse creativity and artistic skills of the Studio members, team and volunteers.

The charity Studio Upstairs was founded in 1988 to meet the needs of people moving out of the psychiatric health system, by providing a supportive community-based environment somewhat removed from the conventional clinical setting, where members can communicate their experiences through making art.  It is now celebrating its 30th year in London, has a branch in Bristol, and has recently opened in Croydon.

The exhibition will showcase work from members of the Studio Upstairs past and present and includes painting, print, sculpture and digital media.

Artist Statement: ‘As artists, we make art to explore our experiences of everyday life and use them as raw material in the creative process. In doing so we can make these experiences understandable or acceptable to ourselves and to the world outside.’

‘Studio Upstairs is a space to take some joy in colour, texture, and making art. For those of us who struggle to find a way to be with ourselves and others, this can the breathing space we need.’

Barnabas is a new supported living service providing people with autism the opportunity to have their own flat in the heart of Hackney in East London, where they can enjoy their own space, learn skills and develop their independence with the assurance of having on hand support from a caring and skilled team 24 hours a day.

The townhouse consists of four self-contained, one-bedroom flats. There is also an enclosed courtyard at the back, which staff and tenants will use for barbeques and other social gatherings.
