Weʼre raising £500 to shine a light on carers (unpaid) with photographs and words, ensuring every carer is exhibited and heard.

Invisible Army started in Autumn 2019 aiming to represent the current landscape of unpaid care. Before Covid we visited 6 carers to collect focussed studies of them and their families. The body of work consists of documentary photography and long-form interviews. The studies are intimate, concentrated on the everyday lives of people who are caring for someone with an illness and/or disability on an emotional, social, and financial level. We have now collected 32 stories which we have exhibited at a week-long exhibition at The Vestibules in Bristol.
Thanks to Arts Council England we received funding to collect and exhibit 16 carers' stories however the interest in our project has been eye-opening. We have doubled the number of carers who have shared their every day lives with us. We want to ensure all of these carers stories are exhibited! This means we have a shortfall in the funding, so to ensure each carer is heard we need your donations. Any extra donations will go towards our future projects.
P.s We are aware some of you kindly donated previously however you may find the money has been refunded into your bank account. This is due to a error. If you would kindly re-donate we would really appreciate it.

Thank you to Annette, her mum and daughter for taking part in Invisible Army - Stories of Carers (Unpaid) We are in the process of applying for a grant to continue collecting stories and exhibit them. Carers deserve to be seen, listened to and appreciated. We have made connections with Central Library and The Galleries in Bristol, Swindon Council and Gloucester Young Carers and hope to work with them on our march for Carers' recognition. Any contribution will be welcome. Thank you from Tina and Carina
