The Flourish Festival took place at the Yellow Wave Café on the sea front in Brighton alongside the Brighton Festival on Friday 20th May, as part of the creative arts projects which are helping residents of the local Jewish Care Hyman Fine House to age positively, living meaningful and creative lives.
Exhibits included a participatory photography project with striking images taken of residents by local photographer Ewa Mikrut on display and fun creative photos were also taken at the event.
Other group participation projects at the home including silk painting with Creationlace and trolleygarden for people who find it difficult to garden outside, and have been made possible with grants from The Six Point Foundation. Home Manger, Natasha Carson said,
“This was a great inter-generational community event that was fun for all and we had visitors from three other local care homes as well as passers-by ranging from 6 months to our one of our 96 year old residents. On the day the photography and music were particularly popular with many visitors posing for photos in costumes lent to us by Glad Rags.”
