BELFAST MELA

Momentos

A light and sculptural exhibition celebrating the stories and memories of older people

This exhibition is a showcase of a reminiscence project delivered by ArtsEkta targeted at older people and their carers.

With a range of professional artists, participants chose significant stories from their lives and create multi artform outcomes. They created illuminated paper carved scenes in light boxes. Some of the participants crafted a collection of ceramic buildings to create an illuminated village. Participants also worked on a cross-cultural ceramics project creating animals which will be displayed in a water-based surround. They also created largescale collaborative pieces which were contributed to by all participants to create this installation. The creative ideas have come directly from the people we will be working Arts and social history from a wide range of participants will be explored.

They worked with a range of artists including Peter Surgioner, Kerrie Hanna, Alice Murphy and Karolina Baldyga.

No tickets are required to view the exhibition, simply drop in at you own leisure.
