This month Intermix ran a collection of workshops at The Mill with staff, Service Users and the public.
The Mill was transformed as part of this exhibition and Locality Manager, Adam Clayton, was delighted with the outcome, “Different spaces in the building were used to display paintings, sculpture, jewellery and video art. On Friday evening live music was performed in the studio and the exhibition was visited by over one hundred people, it was great to see the Mill being used so creatively.”
Over the two days the exhibition and workshops at The Mill had over 150 people attend. There were music performances throughout the night, and the three different spaces of the Mill were transformed. With a video and music room upstairs, it meant that people could explore and discover different things. The main room was used as exhibition space and displayed Intermix and Service Users work.
Nat, of Intermix, was “incredibly grateful to Oxfordshire Mind for having Intermix Jungle at their incredible space, The Mill. Running the art workshops for Mind was both incredibly useful for our artists and hopefully really enjoyable for the service users. For the artists it gave an opportunity to develop their teaching skills, and for the service users, the workshops were both fun and therapeutic. One service user even told me that they enjoyed ‘the most relaxed day for weeks’ during a workshop!”
Miranda, of Intermix, “hopes that in the future more collaboration will be possible between our collective and the charity. As an organisation to co-create our first show with, Oxfordshire Mind have been incredibly accommodating, allowing us to completely transform their space and fill it with art, music, and about one hundred and fifty people!”
