AN EXHIBITION highlighting the impact of brain injuries on five people from the North East opens in Newcastle tomorrow (October 13).
Life After Brain Injury will showcase the work of Dr Amy Izycky, a photographer and clinical psychologist and psychodynamic psychotherapist who works with people who have suffered traumatic brain injuries.
The exhibition, which will raise money for Headway – the brain injury association, will examine how people continue with their lives after a severe injury, focussing on five people from across the North East.
These include a Sunderland man who was left with disabilities after three strokes and a young woman who acquired a brain injury after a birth trauma.
Sponsored by EMG Solicitors of County Durham, the exhibition will open at The Mushroom Rooms at the Ouseburn Valley with a launch reception and preview on Friday, 13 October.
Tickets are £10 each with all proceeds going to Headway.
On Saturday, the exhibition will be open to the public to give people the chance to view the images for free, although donations to the charity will be welcome. All photographs will be available to buy, along with Christmas cards designed by the subjects of the images.
“We are delighted to be sponsoring the exhibition and we hope that as many people as possible will come along and see it,” said Emma Gaudern, Managing Director of EMG Solicitors.
Tickets for tomorrow’s preview evening are available at £10 each by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
