No Regrets by Michal Iwanowski at The Courtyard, Hereford
Type of Event: Art Exhibition
Another chance to see one of our Gwanwyn commissioned projects as it it comes to The Courtyard Centre for the Arts, Hereford.
No Regrets by Michal Iwanowski is a series of photographic works documenting older people and the inspiring stories behind their tattoos.
Says Emma Robinson, Age Cymru’s Arts & Creativity Programme Manager:
“The idea for ‘No Regrets’ came from the notion that people who get tattoos are always told that they will regret them when they’re older.
“As Gwanwyn is the Wales-wide, national arts festival for older people, I thought it would be interesting to ask older people if they really do regret their tattoo.
“We are excited to be exhibiting the work for the first time outside Wales at the Courtyard Centre for the Arts and hope that this exhibition will challenge preconceptions on what it’s like to be an older person.”
Launching in conjunction with 'Scorched' a physical theatre piece that explores a similar theme, it will run until September.
