The Chinwags group display a unique piece of aboriginal art work which will be displayed at ATLAS in Sloan Street.

Atlas (Adult Training Learning and Support) recently facilitated the Chinwags Women’s group to create a unique work of art with funding from Lisburn Partnership and are delighted to announce the completion of this exciting multi-cultural arts project.  The distinctive piece of artwork recognises the diversity of the members, who are all disabled and the worldwide connections they have with family and friends.  With this concept in mind, they used their combined efforts to create a multi-cultural work of art, which will be displayed at ATLAS in Sloan Street.

One Chinwags member, Mrs Thelma Johnson stated, “I have been associated with Atlas for quite a while now, and for them to motivate people to create such a wonderful piece of work, such as this, does not surprise me.”

Both Atlas and Chinwags would like to take this opportunity to thank Lisburn North Community Association for hosting this project, Disability Network for their support staff and N.ABLE counselling for also supporting the group.
