We have recently installed an art exhibition of work at Ilkeston Hospital of our Arts Desire Project. We created this artwork with members of Flamsteed Dementia Day Centre and the Creative Arts Project in Ilkeston. You can see we had a lot of fun in the sessions.

We spent a couple of days working with around 180 children from every year group to make mobiles. The theme was Our Amazing World, and we had to think about what they could do to make the world amazing to be in. The project was funded by Community One and Derby City Council.
