In 2018, OFS and Crisis collaborated on Our Place, a visual arts project that brought together Crisis members and professional artists to create artwork for an exhibition in the OFS gallery.
A panel of Crisis members and OFS and Crisis staff appointed Katie Taylor as an artist-in-residence. Katie supported participants to create artworks that explored their relationships to OFS and the surrounding area.
To evaluate the impact of Our Place, we collected the stories of eight people involved in the project in different ways - participants, professional artists, staff members. We then brought people together to analyse the stories and identify what could be learned from them.
