CREATIVE FOR LIFE

Creative For Life (2016 Schedule)
Wednesdays from 12 noon-2 pm (all year round)

 

Creative for Life is a community arts project for people who have had experience of mental  health problems, and would like to engage with the community by making artwork within a  group setting. Creative for Life aims to offer people opportunities to move forward as part of  society, challenging the stigma of mental health, with people from all different backgrounds working together with a common interest in art.

 

Adults with mental health concerns who are looking for a creative outlet, or those who are looking to socialise in a safe and creative environment, will benefit from this programme. During the sessions we take a multi-arts approach, and are currenty working towards creating pieces of music, large scale art, performance poetry and exhibition pieces of art to go on display in the local area.

 

No previous experience is necessary and everyone works at their own pace and level of ability.

Admission to the group is mainly through referrals from IAPT or GP, but people can also self-refer by contacting Nikki Watson on nikki@greenshoearts.com .

We know that being involved with the arts as a participant or as a viewer can have a profound effect on people's lives; whether it is running a film project for young people at risk of exclusion or giving adults with learning difficulties the chance to create stories and perform in front of an audience, we know that life is made more enjoyable and rewarding when we spend time doing something creative with a group of friends, old and new.If you believe the arts are as important as we do, please consider making a small donation. We appreciate your continued support!
