Project eARTh, environmental arts and health, is an exciting project now in its 10th year, for people experiencing mental distress and other long term conditions.
Weekly creative arts sessions led by experienced artists and supported by mental health workers and volunteers. Participants can meet people, learn new skills, have fun, build confidence and contribute towards their built and natural environments with works of art. There is no need for any previous arts experience, and we want to encourage people who don’t think of themselves as ‘arty’.
After being very pleased to run face to face workshops from September onwards, we now need to pause them again for this November 2020 lockdown.
We are planning new projects for participants to start at home, until we can meet again.
Groups meet at Springbank Arts Centre in New Mills, SK22 4BH on Thursdays from 10.30am – 1pm, and at the URC church, Hardwick Square East Sk17 6PT in Buxton on Mondays from 12.30pm – 3pm. The project is free of charge.
How to join in:
Participants can be referred through their GP, Mental Health Team, other statutory or voluntary agencies or simply refer themselves. You can Fill in the Form!, complete and post to High Peak Community Arts, High Lee Hall, St. Mary’s Rd, New Mills, High Peak SK22 3BW.
