Tibbs Dementia Art Activitea: Brushstrokes Art Exhibition

Continues until 24th November 2019

Outside Settlement Gallery, Free Entry













View an incredible display of art works created by people living with dementia, recovering from strokes and their carers.


Two local groups, who have been meeting weekly at The Higgins Bedford, are showcasing their work in an exciting new exhibition. ‘Art-Activitea’, run by Tibbs Dementia Foundation has offered a variety of creative activities, as well as provided refreshments, support and good company. ‘Brushstrokes’, a group supported by The Stroke Association and the NHS, has encouraged participants to use painting and drawing to aid recovery from strokes and has highlighted the importance of supporting each other and togetherness.


The artworks on display range from watercolours of local scenes to 3D and multi-media work. Each piece presents the unique individuality of the artist and their experiences with dementia and in stroke recovery.
