What matters to you matters to me is a commission for Arts Derbyshire’s Cultural Prescription program which brings about partnerships between the culture, health and wellbeing sectors and the social prescribing agenda. The commissions main objective is to support Link Workers, in their work with vulnerable members of society.
I referenced Still Life paintings and their consideration of the transient as a starting point. To date I have created catalysing editioned artworks which were posted to participants; developed a series of Zoom sessions and generated further mail art resources and provocations. These have led to the co-designing of work which is enabling Link Workers and more recently their clients space to create and make informed choices. Choices that perhaps couldn’t have been imagined before. We are currently developing a publication that will shared across the county under the title Joyful Interruptions
Our aim is to create methodologies that inform both Art Derbyshire’s strategic ambitions and impact the delivery of Social Prescribing regionally and nationally.
The commission was designed for delivery in a Covid-19 context.
