SUPER SNOUT SYMBIOSIS: HOW DOGS AND ART CAN HELP US THRIVE

This exhibition is a celebration of service dogs. It aims to raise awareness of different types of service dogs and the vital work that they do in detecting onsets of ill health and helping people to regain independence. It is also a celebration of all other dogs, our pets, and the crucial part that they play in our happiness and well-being!
All work exhibited has been produced collaboratively between Artworks South Yorkshire and ecological artist Lucy Dewsnap.
Artwork in the exhibition is by artists from ArtWorks South Yorkshire, aim to challenge perceptions of learning disabilities and autism through celebrating the creativity.
Workshop leader Lucy explains, “There are currently 11 accredited ADUK charities that specifically train dogs to support individuals living with various disabilities and illness’. Many of these charities rely heavily on the support of the public and so, through a range of informative and creative workshops we hope to raise awareness of the fantastic work done by charities such as Medical detection dogs.”
