We proudly provide coaching and training opportunities for people with mental health support needs. We operate creative art projects set within social enterprises. We offer a structured approach to support personal & professional development through art workshops, webinars, courses, career advice, and progression.

There are three significant aims take place:

Participation & Creativity

Engaging in creative and artistic activities with participants with mental health conditions and support participants to develop new core skills and abilities through practice-based forms of making and doing. The main aim of workshops is to stimulate each participants' creative flair by opening up new opportunities to gain a broader understanding of their full potentials as visual learners, giving them a chance of using different innovative techniques.

Engagement, Diversity & Inclusion

Facilitating community art workshops that allow art activities to help participants open up and talk while working and enable them to express themselves visually. Engaging in meaningful activities contributes to community participation for the members of the mental health community in Tower Hamlets; this means to connect with others and break down isolation and loneliness. 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.

Sustainability & Improving Lives

The participants will work with various award schemes to receive special grants for further aspirations and further developments. Learning new skills and sharing new ideas improves the sense of emotional wellbeing and visual artmaking could be a great source of a calming practice to cope with positive and negative emotions effectively.
