Growing Health Connections in North Devon
The One Northern Devon project used creative interventions to support the health and wellbeing of 120 people across four priority groups in Braunton, South Molton, Torrington and Bideford.
In the lead commission, Catherine West of Significant Seams worked with a group of participants from Bideford North Devon, cultural producer Claire Gulliver as well as photographer Jim Wileman and videographer and artist GIllian Taylor. Delivered in partnership with Beaford Arts and Northern Devon’s cultural sector, the case study was independently evaluated by Take a Part. It was funded by Arts Council England and Devon County Council. The project supported local people affected by health inequalities – the same people who have been worst affected by the pandemic. Going with the Flow is a co-created artwork that emerged from the collaborations.
The artwork includes an installation featuring a photo essay, video , and wall-hanging.
