Feeling at Home exhibition at The Hive, Shrewsbury

After a brilliant exhibition at Science Gallery London in the spring, we are thrilled to announce that the Feeling at Home study will be holding its travelling exhibition at The Hive in Shrewsbury, from the Friday 1 September to Wednesday 4 October 2023.

This exhibition is part of the Feeling at Home research project, funded by the National Institute of Health and Care Research’s School for Social Care Research.

Our researchers worked with the 19 photographers with learning disabilities using the photovoice research method in which people tell their stories, share their experiences, and work towards improving their lives through photography.

The photographers met with researchers and supporters in small groups to reflect on what helps them feel at home, and what gets in the way of this.

The photographers are pleased to present their work in this travelling exhibition, and invite you to engage with the issues they highlight through their images and captions.

Free drop-in activities – Wednesday 4 October 2023

We will be running a free drop-in activity between 12.30 and 4pm at the exhibition space for people to try out the photovoice method and reflect on what helps them feel at home. Everyone is welcome at this engagement activity, but we would particularly like to encourage people affected by the issues highlighted in this exhibition.
