Story

This funding will support a series of interactive creative workshops for adults, an exhibition of abstract paintings by Dora Williams and Liz Johnson's new work 'Credo' performed by Adam Römer (CBSO viola leader).

The works of artist Dora Williams and composer Liz Johnson explore a synergy between the two disciplines through the creative process. Time spent creating side by side in the studio has led to some unexpected outcomes for both the artist and the composer.

Migration and displacement are explored in Liz’s music ‘Colwall Requiem for Aleppo' which has influenced Dora’s painting, a connection deeply felt by Dora being a migrant herself.

Art can be a powerful productive force in sparking change or critical thinking. We believe the artist has responsibility to address contemporary social issues. Art is never created in a vacuum. It is important to understand the historical, cultural and social circumstances behind the creation and the creator.

Adam Römer and Liz Johnson working on 'Credo' inspired by the art of Dora Williams

29 September 2017 - 7.30 pm “Creative Synergy” at Elmslie House, Malvern. An evening of art and music including debate with the audience about how art engages with issues of migration and displacement.

Tickets £ 10 including free drink.

The free exhibition is open until the 8th October during the hours 2.30 - 5.30 pm .

The interactive creative workshops for adults dates will be announced shortly.
