Hastings Contemporary has been working with Drawing Life for the past three years hosting life drawing sessions in the gallery studio led by local artists from the Drawing Life team. We are proud to be exhibiting artwork produced during Drawing Life sessions as part of our ongoing programme of art displays in the gallery café, to help raise awareness about dementia and to support health and wellbeing through the arts.
Drawing Life is a Hastings based arts organisation providing access to the arts and a place for social interaction for people living with dementia. The organisation’s aim is to relieve the isolation experienced by people living with dementia, and by extension their carers, by offering creative outlets and opportunities for individual expression.
Drawing Life is a registered charity no 1182355
