WHO WE ARE

We have strong social skills and attributes to offer the business world, including leadership, collaboration, and teamwork. We have a wholehearted enthusiasm and commitment to growing the greatest needs for local communities for achieving the following outcomes:

  • Making a positive difference in people's lives by working can constructively and holistically improve the community members' well being mainly through self-discovery, achievement and meaningful participation projects.

  • Encouraging imagination and creativity by empowering the participant to be aware of their creative flow to produce unique works will enhance their abilities. Opening group exhibitions help increase resilience and engender a sense of belonging that will build new relationships.​​

  • ​Learning new skills and sharing new ideas improves emotional well-being and visual art-making could be a great calming practice source.

  • Becoming better communicators will enhance self-esteem and encourage further development, and it will create healthy habits and personal growth. The participants will be continuing professional artistic development plans, and they will take new steps for further opportunities.

  • Exploring brand new career options: skills, goals, interests and look at how they relate to potential career plans

  • Improving self-management skills to improve communities health, wellbeing & fitness.

WHAT WE DO

The primary purpose of supporting people with mental health and wellbeing is tackling isolation and loneliness so that community groups can manage their mental health so they can achieve a meaningful life and a definite sense of belonging in their community. 

 

Our Community members practice necessary Art & Crafts activities while working with mixed media techniques, using art to express and communicate their internal voices. Most projects normally include 3 - 4 hour-long art workshops, held once a week for ten weeks. We intend to work with around twelve adults who are a part of our day centres in Tower Hamlets.

‘Fill Your Life With Creative Arts'  offers an opportunity for local mental health service users, who are suffering from many obstacles:


Ongoing mental distress and traumatic experiences (memory loss, fearfulness, mood swings etc.)

Lack of concentration and motivation (Social withdrawal, isolation)
Poor relationships and other social problems such as loneliness and isolation
Social barriers ( this including additional support needs, discrimination, inequality, prejudice, etc.)
Emotional barriers (this including anxiety, anger, stress, depression, grief, etc.)
Lack of physical needs (lack of sleep, exercises, nutrition, healthy lifestyle etc.)
Lack of psychological needs (such as feeling suicidal, self-esteem, confidence, self-awareness, etc.)

To help participants become more insightful about their unhelpful habits to understand better making healthy choices. It will support people with mental health, helping them overcome social barriers and participate in wider communities.
