Our community arts projects are designed and developed to support peoples’ health and wellbeing.
Extra Time does just that by bringing school children together with care home residents to share their experiences, interests, skills and talents.
Guided by professional artists, the participants explore new ideas, learn a little about each other and create beautiful new art works to express what they’ve discovered; this work is celebrated and shared through exhibitions, web sites and other social media platforms.
So it was that children from Roman Hill Primary School connected with residents at Britten Court Care Home in an active, purposeful way.
They reflected on and shared their unique experiences, interests and skills, learned about their local footballing heritage, and gave each other their time and companionship.
It’s been a fabulous opening season for Extra Time, and we would like to thank everyone involved in making it such a success.
From the Suffolk Archive staff to the Britten Court chefs, by way of the care and school staff ’refs’, the artist ‘coaches’ and Project Officer ‘referees’, thank you for taking part and making it such a joy.
And to the Britten Court Angels and Roman Hill Football Club players, a huge congratulations to you all for the marvellous work you’ve made and the fun we’ve had together; I hope you enjoy this very special Extra Time Souvenir Programme.
