Exhibition, Films and Workshops by Hazel Hammond. Supported by Liz Clarke and Company.
Hazel Hammond has been a poet and an artist for over 40 years. In 2018 she had a stroke and now lives with Aphasia, a changing condition affecting over 350,000 people in the UK and impacting ability to speak, write and read.
Learning to use words again is tricky for a poet! 'Not the Same Poet, But Always an Artist 'explores the effects of Aphasia on Hazel’s work as she rediscovers her artistic practice through drawings, film making, and other artforms.
Drawing and artistic expression have been vital to her recovery. This work tells Hazel’s story visually and she hopes it will support other people living with Stroke and their families, raising awareness of the vital role that arts can play in recovery.
