Artist Statement:

‘Randomly – at 4 am, nine months ago, I found an invitation to volunteer at the Salisbury Centre some time – and I replied, with a vague email, with the hope of contributing creatively, not knowing how the journey would evolve.

As a result, I found myself making images of ‘The Hands of the Salisbury Centre’… hands interacting with each other, and with the environment – the fabric of the community.

The theme of connection evolved as I captured an informal group portrait in this work, bringing to mind the practice of ‘Mudras’ – a language of the hands, serving as a vehicle of communication, and of narratives, capturing the moments in-between.

The community has also been a great support to my own mental wellbeing, with ongoing regular activities and interactions, for which I am grateful.

With thanks to all the members of the Salisbury Centre.’
Louise Adam

About Donations: 


Participation in our community-led events is often on a voluntary ‘by donation’ basis. This means that nobody is expected to make a payment if they cannot afford to do so. However, any donations received will be shared between the Centre and the facilitator, helping to make the events’ programme sustainable as well as to provide some reciprocity towards community facilitators’ time and skills offered.

Where a “suggested donation” is listed, this is just an indication of what the event might cost if it was ticketed – it is fine to donate less (or nothing at all). Donating is one way to show your appreciation for the value of the Salisbury Centre. Please consider ‘paying it forward’ by donating a bit extra if you can afford, helping to keep it possible for everyone to take part, regardless of their circumstances.

To donate:


  • bring cash or
  • donate online on  www.salisburycentre.org/donate  (Please use reference “EVENT NAME” when submitting).
  • Card payment option available at the entrance hall next to the notice board (Please enter the event’s

This is an invitation to practice ‘Dana’ (generosity) – please pay only what you can afford to attend.
