Art in the Park: a free outdoor exhibition featuring work by children who have, or have had, cancer

13 September @ 10:00 am - 27 September @ 4:00 pm

Free
Art in the Park is a FREE outdoor exhibition in the Quarry Gardens at Russells Garden Centre in Baginton, featuring work by children who have, or have had, cancer. It is part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
All the art on display holds precious memories for the families. The exhibition will raise much-needed awareness of childhood cancer and it will have a positive impact on those children and the families of those children who have creations in the gardens.
The outdoor exhibition, best explored using a trail map, features the children’s stories and explains why art and creativity have been so important to them and their families. We have also featured some artist advocates who’s work has helped spread awareness about childhood cancer.
We hope you enjoy the artwork of our amazing children in a calm, reflective and healing outdoor space.
We believe in the power of nature, and at this time of change and emotion we hope you find some solace in the gardens whilst finding out more about our amazing children.
You can also view the exhibition online at www.passthesmile.org
The Art in the Park exhibition is hosted by Russells Garden Centre in the Quarry Gardens, and is supported by the Heart of England Co-operative Society Ltd Helping Hearts Awards Scheme.
The online exhibition is hosted by our friends at Hope For The Community CIC. For parents and caregivers of children affected by cancer, Hope for the Community will be also offering a free online wellbeing course called the Hope Programme. We are proud to be partnered with them. The 6 week course will start on 1st November 2022 and is funded by Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group – CCLG. More details will follow.
Most importantly, thank you to all the families who let us into their lives and shared the fabulous art work with us. We are very honoured that you agreed to be part of this emotional project.
