Roon the Toon

This is a project that has been brought to Whithorn by artist James Galloway working with Whithorn Primary School, Whithorn Trust and Lifelong Learning. A project to design bespoke board games highlighting various historical sites within the participants’ home towns. The main brief was not only to design and structure workshops which would produce a finished board design, we also aimed to use this creative project to provide a range of social and personal benefits to all who participated. This is project has been used in care homes working with people living with dementia.
The four week project will conclude at the beginning of February and a display of their work will be able to be seen in the Community Centre and the Whithorn Trust a few weeks later.
