Arthouse: Remembrance In Relief

Single Homeless Projects Ceramic Plaque-Making Course funded by Hospice UK as part of the Dying Matters Campaign

‘Remembrance In Relief’ is a collection made by participants of Single Homeless Projects innovative ‘Arthouse Programme’ on a ceramics course inspired by the concept of the English blue heritage plaques.

Over the past year, over 20 SHP Arthouse participants, have worked together with potters and psychologists to grapple with one of society’s most challenging, and rarely spoken about topics; grief and death.

As part of this course participants have designed and hand-made ceramic plaques made to celebrate their own lives, or the life of someone loved or admired.

“Death used to be something I sort of avoided talking about, but this course had helped me to process it a bit and to spend time thinking about my Grandad” – Ceramics Participant

Alongside the ceramics collection this exhibition will also feature examples of SHP Arthouse participant’s recent creative work on a range of visual art courses. This includes original prints, films and paintings, highlighting the diverse offer of our in-house creative arts programme.

Arthouse works with over 200 people a year across SHP’s adult and young people’s services. The programme offers opportunities to engage in practical arts courses, explore creative training and work with local art organisations to showcase participants work.

Single Homeless Project is a London-wide charity. From supporting people in crisis to helping people take the final steps towards independence and employment, we make a difference to 10,000 lives every year across all 32 London boroughs.

Dying Matters Campaign Information:

Talking about death, dying and bereavement is hard. It can feel awkward or uncomfortable and sometimes, you just don’t know what to say.

Dying Matters is the campaign that is trying to change that. Dying Matters aims to break the stigma, challenge preconceptions and normalise public openness around dying.

We all know that the difficult bit is getting the conversation started – and that’s why the Dying Matters Community Grants Programme exists, to look for new and creative ways to spark those important conversations in communities across the UK.

Dying Matters is the flagship campaign from Hospice UK, the national charity for hospice and end of life care. Hospice UK works to ensure everyone affected by death, dying and bereavement gets the care and support they need, when they need it.
