Take in some art with your coffee (and excellent cake!) Wednesday 16th August to Friday 29th September Following the great success of HITH's Messages from the HeART exhibition at Ocean Studios in May/June 2022, and collaborative Messages from the HeARTlands exhibitions (with The Intersection and Real Ideas Organisation) at Devonport Guildhall in October 2022, Lived Experience artwork with a message to people in power is now on display at the wonderful Boston Tea Party, also in Plymouth, until the end of September. Amazing, powerful, moving artwork plus great coffee, cake and more - right by the waterside! Please come along if you can, bring friends and family, and the professionals in your life (especially health and social care, criminal justice, commissioners and others with the power to affect positive change). Please make sure you leave feedback to show our artists their personal and powerful messages are being heard.
