Conversations Over A Brew: Season 2, Episode 4

24th Jan 2022

Artist Lou Chapelle meets with Hugh Wareing to talk about working together on the You Make Me Feel Good project.

Lou Chapelle and Hugh Wareing met on a beautiful summer's day last year to reflect upon their work together as part of the You Make Me Feel Good project, which Lou developed in response to the isolating effects of lockdown.

Lou is a cross-disciplinary artist who works in collaboration with people and communities to explore human connection and reinvent our sense of belonging. You Make Me Feel Good invited members of U3A St Helens (University Of The Third Age) and residents of Heald Farm Court to revisit their happy memories of togetherness, friendship and love through dance, poetry and drawing. The process of sharing these memories with one another through creativity rejuvenated old experiences, recasting them as seeds from which new connections could grow.

Hugh is the chair of U3A St Helens and contributed a whole bunch of wonderful thoughts, memories and drawings to You Make Me Feel Good and Lou gathered them all, along with everyone else's to make a beautiful e-zine which you can download for free.

Enjoy this episode with a brew and a couple of biscuits.
