Foster Care Fortnight
A BRIGHT and BRILLIANT art exhibition created by Somerset 11 to 16 year olds who are currently in care has launched Foster Care Fortnight 2016! Today the children and young people’s ‘Dreams and Aspirations’ exhibition opens to the public for THREE WEEKS at Taunton’s Brewhouse Theatre.

Somerset County Council’s Foster Care Fortnight includes several special events to help raise the profile of fostering in Somerset, and encourage people to think about fostering themselves. We are urging local people to come forward and become Foster Carers, especially for secondary school-age children in Somerset – one of its biggest areas of need.

The children and young people created their art across two days at Bridgwater’s Rollercoaster youth centre, working with a tireless team of enthusiastic volunteers from across Somerset.

Each of the children and young people’s individual art projects captures their hopes and aspirations for the future, or the stuff of dreams; things that matter most to them or excite, interest and energise them. Their pieces come together in a bright mishmash of styles, spanning abstract dreamscapes, Marvel-style costumes, bold colour and character, photography, splashes of paint, and streams of textiles.
