Homelessness charity Providence Row will be sharing a range of art and creative projects all created by their learning and wellbeing programme participants as part of an exhibition at Rich Mix, a multi-arts venue in Bethnal Green.
The free exhibition will be open from Thursday 19 July until Monday 23 July. More details are available on the Rich Mix website (https://www.richmix.org.uk/events/exhibitions/providence-row-arts-show)
Art tutor Chris Bardo said: “We have some exceptional artists here at Providence Row and they have worked very hard to produce this wonderful exhibition. We can’t wait to welcome the general public to see this amazing work and find out more about the work of the charity.”
Providence Row’s Learning and Wellbeing programme is part-funded by the Big Lottery Fund, and includes a range of sessions including art, film, IT, English and more. The programme has been running for just over 4 years now and has supported more than 1,000 people affected by homelessness during that time.
