Crafting Relationships

Crafting Relationships, our intergenerational strand of work, has been running since 2012.

Most of our current work is as a delivery partner, together with emh homes, on our local Big Lottery Funded, Ageing Better project Leicester Ageing Together. Scroll through the photos below to get an overview of all the different projects!

Guest blog – Helen Gyngell

Beauty and Utility Arts have been involved with the placing public art with an Arts and Health context into a few Leicester Health Centres now and last Autumn we were pleased to work with Helen Gyngell again at the Melbourne Road Healthcare Centre on Melbourne Road.

If you ever find yourself at any of the healthcare centres in Leicester mentioned in earlier blog posts, pop in and have a look at some of the work we’ve supported and in the meantime, enjoy Helen’s post.
