A set of 6 postcards featuring seaside images by Bristol artist Suzy Furse. The images were commissioned by Brave Bold Drama for a sensory story project we created for people living with dementia. The project was called Beside the Sea and was designed to help people living in care homes with dementia enjoy a day out on a British beach by using in their imaginations and connecting with their senses.
Profits from these postcards will be used to support further creative projects with care homes in the south west.
Postcards measure 148mm x 105mm.
