The Future

Following the success of the 2017/18 project theme Beneath our Feet, Escape are excited to introduce 'Cradle to Grave' our new theme for 2017/18. ‘From Cradle to Grave’ will explore layers of history exploring the stages of life, touching on the healthcare system and experiences of everyday life.  This pilot project will continue to bring together all our diverse and exciting Warwickshire wide workshops and activities.

 Celebrating the last 2 years - Changing Landscapes 2016-2017

Over the last two years Escape has been offering a new programme of creative sessions called Changing Landscapes, funded by Arts Council England.  The programme took a creative look at the ‘fabric of our lives’. Using local memories and heritage together with music and arts  to enrich & inspire and learn something new about the landscapes of our lives.

Throughout the two years work was developed under the following artist led projects.

‘Growing up by the River’ – exploring the shared experiences of people growing up in different communities through textiles, ceramics and introduction to sketching and painting.

‘Bread – Serving a Feast’.  a 'flavoursome' project exploring the history of food traditions, recipes, foraging, cooking and sharing, involving textiles, sculpture, recipe books and utensils as part of an inter-community series based on, rationing, childhood memories and cultural backgrounds .

‘Women working’s’  looking at the changes to our lives and communities as a result of womens working lives.

The work produced formed part of a celebratory exhibition, marking 20 years since the charities beginnings.
