If you pop into The Cellar Trust Café this month, you will see some original artwork gracing our walls. The postcards on display are the result of a project linked to the Saltaire Arts Trail. ‘Be Part of the Art’ was aimed at encouraging people of all ages and levels to take part by designing a 6” x 4” postcard. This was on any theme and gave everyone the chance to be creative.
Two Business students from the Centre of Excellence for Business at Shipley College, Fahema Ali and Sabrina Hussain, took the lead on the project and The Cellar Trust were lucky enough to be the chosen venue to display and sell the postcards with all proceeds supporting our work.
We will have the postcards until 30 June in our Café and are delighted to be working with the Saltaire Arts Trail 2016. As a local charity helping people experiencing mental health problems, working with an organisation like Saltaire Inspired is a great opportunity to make people more aware of who we are and what we do. The postcard exhibition will give people a chance to enjoy some great art in the lovely setting of our newly refurbished café and they can support us by being part of the art and even purchasing a postcard.
