The Living Tree

The Living Tree 10th year anniversary exhibition
– Tuesday 6 to Saturday 10 September 2022

“We are thrilled to announce that this September, the Living Tree will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary!! I can’t believe it is 10 years ago since Rosie Jackson first introduced Jo O’Farrell & I to each other, & we lit a candle in each other’s imaginations! We went to a Cancer creative writing workshop together in the September of 2012, led by Rosie & held at the Fortuneswell Unit at Dorset County Hospital. This began what has developed into a huge belief in the power of creativity to help heal, & Living Tree has always offered creative opportunities to its members, amongst the many other ways in which we offer support to those with cancer.
We have a wonderful week planned, with a beautiful exhibition in the Gallery of Living Tree members’ creative work both new & old. The exhibition will run from Tuesday 6th to Saturday 10th September, & is free & open to all. It is being curated by Chris Edwards & Libby Jukes, & without saying too much, I hope you will be overwhelmed & moved by the quality & content of the material.
On Thursday 8th September there will be a Poetry evening in the Arts Centre, led by Rosie Jackson, where you will have a chance to hear poems & short pieces of creative writing written by Living Tree members, including the late Jo O’Farrell, plus pieces by Rosie Jackson & the late Sophie Sabbage.
Tickets available from Bridport Arts Centre Box office in TIC 01308 424901 or online at www.bridport-arts.com
Please come along to see the exhibition & help us to celebrate!
