Art of Attachment
The nurturing and care we receive when young shapes the way we form relationships throughout life.
This is attachment.
Art of Attachment is an 18 month project funded by Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England which uses the arts to explore relationships, reclaiming the idea of attachment for the people it is often used to describe.
The project invites BOP clients as well as member of in the wider community to participate in workshops and events run by the project’s lead artists; choreographer/director Charlotte Vincent of Vincent Dance Theatre (VDT) and poet Lemn Sissay.
Their work will culminate in a live production at Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts on 18 Oct 2018.
We are also working with other artists including filmmaker, Becky Edmunds and painter, Oscar Romp and illustrator, Laura Bissonet.

Following a successful launch exhibition at ONCA Gallery in December 2017, we recently took over Brighton’s Jubilee Library during the Brighton Festival in May 2018 where we showcased the work of illustrator, Laura Bissonnet, and invited members of the public to create digital images of what attachment meant for them.

Next we will be hosting a 3-day exhbition at Fabrca Gallery which will include a showcase of the film being made by Becky Edmonds.
