Belle Vue Memories!

Artist Alan Birch has been working with elderly patients suffering with Dementia  at Manchester Royal Infirmary

The project in conjunction with at the Whitworth Art Gallery,  and the Manchester Museum, will offer patients the opportunity to learn about objects from the museum collection, work with artists and members of the Whitworth’s education team. Patients were shown images from Belle Vue and objects from the museum collection to bring back memories and inspire creativity. The work produced will be used to create a permanent piece for the hospital created by Alan and artist Lucy Burscough.
