L’Art autrement, 2015-2022
This cultural accompaniment scheme organises specially-adapted creative workshops for people affected by Alzheimer’s disease or other related illnesses, as well as for their friends and families. Share a magical moment together as a group! This project was organised in partnership with the France Alzheimer Association and included the support of SwissLife.
Educational project at the G. Heuyer school centre of the Pitié- Salpêtrière Hospital
The artist Bridget Polk introduced the pupils to the concept of rock balancing, an artistic discipline in which rocks are naturally balanced on top of one another to creature sculptures. Fun, yet gentle and meditative, this workshop enabled them to defy the laws of gravity as well as test their patience.
