14th – 24th November
‘Making my mark’
Kent county Council’s Specialist Fostering Team supports children and young people with disabilities, alongside their foster and Short Break families throughout Kent. Thoughts and feelings about their lives and experiences can often go unnoticed or unheard so we invited these children and young people, as well as their foster and Short Break families, to make their mark on plain white canvas.
The result is an exhibition of very different and contrasting images that capture their voices in a variety of different ways. It is uplifting, heart-warming, touching and very personal to all those who have contributed to date and continues to be built on as new canvases come in.
It reminds us that they are all individuals in their own right and when they come together they shine with a shared sense of belonging and positive self-worth.
This exhibition will travel round Kent exhibiting at Folkestone Quarter House, Gravesend, Sheerness Library, Canterbury, Sessions House Gallery Maidstone and Thanet (Dates to be confirmed.
