Re-Store at TouchBase Pears
30 January – 27 March
TouchBase Pears, Selly Oak.
Re-Store is a project that explores the possibilities of re-using items that have been donated to Sense charity shops. These objects, which were deemed refuse, have been re-used in interactive workshops between RBSA artists Rob Hamp and Andrea Hannon and Sense participant Stuart, re-storing their worth to a re-imagined use.
The exhibition will celebrate the contribution of all involved in the project, including Sense charity shops, participants and support workers. It takes place at TouchBase Pears in Selly Oak and is on display until 27 March.
