Expressions Arts Festival - Opening Minds
The 2018 Expressions Arts Festival – ‘Opening Minds’, curated by Art Consultant Louise Copping, who is renowned for her love of bright colours and extravagance, took place at Bristol’s Paintworks on 15th-16th September. The art event was inspired by nature and the environment, showcasing the artistic work of people with mental health needs and learning disabilities in the South West.
New to 2018 was live entertainment, as we welcomed comedians and bands to take to our performance stage on both days of the festival. Comedians included Steve Day and Juliette Burton whilst singers and performers included Tim Burroughs, Small Days, Leiza Alpass, The Shrinks and more!
