Our last exhibition was Artyfacts:

Throughout 2016, we have been working with community and arts-based charity Pioneer Projects, to create an innovative new exhibition featuring works of art designed and produced by people living with dementia.

Working with the museum's art and social history collections, museum staff have supported creative sessions for people living with dementia and their carers to develop the work that will go on show.

The art created will be accompanied by other work produced by Pioneer Projects as well as videos of some of the projects Pioneer Projects have instigated. The exhibition hopes to raise people's awareness of dementia and also the great initiatives that have been carried out in the area.

Please view the Press Release from the opening night and also coverage in the local press from the  7th October 2016

The Artyfacts Exhibition is a joint initiative between Craven Museum & Gallery and Pioneer Projects and has been funded by the Arts Council England Museum's Resilience Fund, as part of the museum's Museum: Indispensable project.
