To coincide with Mental Health Week This is me: Now and then, then and now will showcase the artworks of BHCAC Artist in Residence Emma Finch along with artworks from participants in Emma’s Art Therapy workshops. Children looked at how they see themselves ‘now’ and depicted how they see themselves ‘then’, when they are over 60. Adults over 60 created images of how they saw themselves back ‘then’, as children, compared to how they see themselves in the ‘now’. This exhibition highlights identity, and acceptance of oneself looking into the present and future, and looking into the past and present. What similarities and differences can be seen? What can we learn from this exciting exhibition about different generations and their perception of self?
