As part of the “I help my loved one” project, led by the MSA Portes de Bretagne and the Espace autonomie santé, a collection of works symbolizing the role of caregiver is being organized. To formalize the launch of the project, and more particularly this operation entitled “Make the invisible visible”, the co-signatories of the project “I help my loved one between Blavet and Scorff” met on Tuesday, September 7, at the Maison des services de Guémené-sur-Scorff.

Gwendal Rolland, director of EAS Center-Bretagne, presented the project: “From September 7 to December 31, any caregiver, on a non-professional basis, is invited to illustrate and symbolize the daily help given to a loved one in loss. autonomy due to age, illness or disability, on the medium of their choice (photo, text, drawing, painting, sculpture, free creation, etc.) ”.

The productions can be deposited in Pontivy, Cléguérec, Rohan, Le Faouët, Gourin, or Guémené-sur-Scorff, generally in town halls.

The achievements will be the subject of a traveling exhibition from November 2021, in the territories of Pontivy Communauté and Roi Morvan Communauté.

The organizers specify that “each creation must be accompanied by a title and a short descriptive and explanatory text. It can be signed or remain anonymous. Dimensions are to be respected in size and weight. The exhibitions will be visible from next November until March 2022, on the territory of the two communities of municipalities “. The schedule will be released later.

The purpose of the operation is to highlight the actions carried out by caregivers with their loved ones, a task that is far from obvious, and which deserves to be brought to light. For caregivers, it will also be an opportunity to learn about existing resources that can support and guide them in their daily lives.
