Ashtons Legal plan to sponsor art exhibition in aid of Headway Cambridgeshire
Ashtons Legal and Headway Cambridgeshire are joining forces to put on an art exhibition with a difference at the Williams Gallery in Cambridge in January 2013.
All the works of art are being created by people who have acquired brain injury and the exhibition will be a celebration of their artistic achievements. It will also illustrate how changes in the brain can influence the way in which people then see and portray everyday items or the subjects of their imagination.
The exhibition, which will run for a fortnight from Friday 18 January at the Williams Gallery in Gwydir Street, has been compiled by Headway’s art therapist support workers. Mary Goode, CEO at Headway Cambridgeshire, explains:
“Art and other creative pursuits are a very valuable part of the post-injury rehabilitation process at Headway. Many of the people we work with are artistically talented and we are really excited to be able to share their work with the public in the forthcoming exhibition.”
Ruth Booy heads the Injury Services team at Ashtons Legal and is a Trustee of Headway Cambridgeshire. She says:
“We see the positive benefits of Headway’s rehabilitation programmes in the course of our work with brain injured clients and are delighted to be able to help showcase these particular artistic achievements. This is of course just one aspect of the vital work undertaken at Headway in offering support and rehabilitation to people with an acquired brain injury, their family and their carers. The exhibition will also help to raise vital funds for the charity, which launched a capital appeal in July 2012, seeking to raise £2.5m to build a new rehabilitation centre.”
