To round up the Black History 365 initiative, Listening Ears hosted the ‘Multicultural Histories Exhibition’ at its Feel Good Centre. Funded by Greenwich Council, the exhibition featured a workshop led by CraftA in which participants created a collage celebrating personal histories and community togetherness. As part of the wider Black History 365 organised by the Royal Borough of Greenwich, the focus at Listening Ears over the past few weeks was to engage our service users in collaborative creativity to produce a beautiful tapestry displayed at the exhibition featuring handmade craftwork and photographs with intricate finishing touches carefully designed by CraftA.
The Feel Good Centre – a project set up by Listening Ears to reduce isolation among the was established in Greenwich in 2006 and celebrates its 17th year in service in October 2023. We were pleased to be joined by Abbey Wood Labour Councillor Ann-Marie Cousins at the exhibition, which opened with a creative collage workshop with CraftA, a display of African and Caribbean heritage and personal histories celebrating values and ideas that are of importance to participants. The resultant artwork explores themes of identity, wellbeing, faith and inclusion. View more on the Listening Ears Facebook page
