Gil facilitated a large outdoor art project within a residential care home in Scotland involving residents, their families, and staff in a creative experience to benefit their well-being.

The project, ‘Tree of Many Colours’ was artist led over a period of a month and encompassed 57 individual large clay tiles. The project has provided a focal piece of art for the home, engendered inter-generational community spirit bringing staff, residents and their families together.

The project was the basis for a book chapter ‘Creatively Healthy – Art in a Care Home Setting in Scotland’ that is currently ‘in press’ and will be published by the International Union of Health Promotion & Education later in the year.
