Daniel Zeichner, Member of Parliament for Cambridge, will this week (Friday 25 January) be visiting Rowan, the local art centre and learning disabilities charity. During the visit Mr Zeichner will receive a full tour of the centre with staff and then meet art students and view their artistic creations.
Daniel Zeichner MP said: “I am delighted to be returning to Rowan and to get the opportunity to see the art that the students have been creating in recent weeks. From previous visits, I know that there is a clear sense of community amongst staff and students, as well as a strong, positive atmosphere. Rowan is an impressive charity that works hard to build a creative and welcoming atmosphere for students and visitors.”
Hetti Wood, Communications Ambassador at Rowan Said: ‘We are looking forward to having Daniel with us at Rowan to meet our student artists and see what we have in store for the year. From our art exhibition in February, our annual sponsored Walk for Rowan in June, a drama performance in April, community events and much more – we have an exciting year ahead!’
Daniel Zeichner is familiar with Rowan and the work they are doing to provide their art centre to people with learning difficulties after visiting the charity several times since becoming MP for Cambridge.
Rowan will be holding a charity event on the weekend of the 9th and 10th of February at Long Road College. Over the last few months, artists have been buying canvases from Rowan (at £10 each, more available!) and the works they’ve created – paintings, textiles, mixed media, sculpture and the like – will be on sale at just £45 each. That’s the same price whether the art is by an accomplished professional or an inspired amateur. All proceeds for the sales of the art will go towards Rowan.
