Four Corners is on the move from the Bluecoat to Five Health Centres around  Liverpool. Today I went to Yewtree Health Centre to check out the highly successful exhibition, I really enjoyed the whole week at the Bluecoat in July so I wondered how this exhibition would transfer to other venues. The answer is very well thank you! Health Centres have loved having the exhibition and the change of atmosphere it has generated . Wendy Court, Health Centre manager and staff loved the change in the atmosphere with the Music, Images, and poetry readings by the very talented and enthusiastic Ethnie Brown ( I was treated today to a spontaneous reading she is so good! )  People were communicating with each other as a result of the exhibition , it gave people a sense of community,encouraged them to look at the type of activities Four Corners has been working on in other areas such activities as origami , thinking about ‘ Recipes for Happiness’ and with a little help putting  their thoughts on paper to be included in the book ( I did mine in July it made me think about the good things I have to be thankful for) The giant apples and bottles on display and the intricate  mosaic water feature all caused lots of interest ,I wonder who made them? Possibly Arts in Regeneration but I’m not sure on that. Jen Heyes, Artistic Director (another wonderfully enthusiastic person) , says “It’s been wonderful to bring the work back home and see people’s response to Art in the Centres .  It has proved that we all need our senses and creativity stimulated to lead active and healthy lives and to connect with each other”. Well that is what 2010 is all about THE YEAR OF HEALTH AND WELL BEING and this talented team is delivering just what the Doctor ordered. Thanks Jen, Ethnie, and technical guys Mike Dunn and Brian Dodd for making such a HUGE impact in the community.   Two more MOVES . Thurs.23 Sept. Speke Health Centre L24  2xp.  Fri. 24th Breezehill Health Centre L9 1AD. Worth going even if you don’t need  to see a Doctor
