Written In Stone Project

In 2022, we were thrilled to deliver ‘Written in Stone’ project which was part of Extraordinary Bodies’ ‘Delicate’ Community Connectors Project.  Following a trip to the Lowry to see ‘Delicate’, 19 participants aged 16 – 81 years old, explored what delicate means to each of us through poetry and land art sessions, led by artist Winston Plowes.  

The group, who have a range of health conditions, took part in six multi sensory sessions.  We saw patterns in nature, touched them, smelt them!  

“We explored what delicate means to each of us and how strength can be delicate.  People thought there was great honesty and that vulnerability is a strength not a weakness”  Martine Bradford Creative Director
