‘A drawing room is a room in a house where visitors may be entertained, and an alternative name for a living room.’
During the global pandemic of 2020 and 2021, all of our homes became more solitary spaces. The visits to care settings to those we loved were restricted. This project imagined the drawing rooms project to inspire new activity where other activity had been disrupted.

Working with staff and residents from Culling Tree Meadows, Arches Care Home and the NOW Group Club, artists David Dunlop and Paul Moore trained participants to create digital drawings. Artworks created have been printed and exhibited here in this bright and experimental exhibition.
Drawings will be delivered back to the original Drawing Rooms in which they were created to be displayed on the walls of the homes from which they came.

This Project was funded by Belfast City Council through the Department For Communities Access and Inclusion Capital Programme 2020/2021.

The University of Atypical’s principal funder is the @National Lottery through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland
