It Takes a Village Exhibition

A powerful and challenging new work featuring a series of portraits by Colin Gray exploring the concept that ‘if it takes a village’ to raise a child it also takes a range of people to look after someone who is dying and their family. Based on a concept and interviews by the Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care, the exhibition shares personal insights and experiences from the various perspectives of people who have cared for someone who’s dying or their family.

It Takes a Village will be on show in 22 venues across Scotland during awareness week - a full list is available here: It Takes a Village Exhibition.
