We run regular sessions and projects using the visual arts to support wellbeing and reduce isolation. We aim to:

  • Make visual arts accessible to all and to break down barriers to participation.

  • Use the visual arts to increase personal and community wellbeing.

  • To make work that is of high quality and to break down the stigma of mental ill-health.

We are currently planning and taking referrals for regular eight-week blocks of sessions based at The Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell. They will be on Fridays 10.30 till 12.30. Dates to be confirmed. We will be researching the history of Norwich’s wonderful textile industry. Each creative session will be inspired by an object in the museum’s collection. We will bring in traditional craftspeople and experts to learn in a hands-on creative way. Open to everyone over the age of 18. No heritage or arts experience needed. This is all about getting together to learn, have fun and be around others to improve wellbeing and reduce isolation. This project has been kindly funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund
