Discovering the impact of art in the Highlands

One of the most rewarding parts of my job as Foundation Manager is seeing first-hand the fantastic work that organisations across the north of Scotland are doing every day.

This week I spent some time at the Art in Transition exhibition at Eden Court in Inverness which is showcasing artwork created by some talented young people with autism through an art therapy programme at Leonard Cheshire Disability’s Cheshire House in Inverness.

Most inspiring of all was hearing from the young people themselves about how art has not only brought them great enjoyment but has also improved their confidence and helped them to communicate with others around them.

The Foundation is excited and privileged to have been able to support Leonard Cheshire Disability in running the art therapy programme and in staging this exhibition. There is no doubt that Gordon and Ena Baxter would have loved it.

The exhibition is on all month and is free of charge. Get along and see it for yourself!
