‘On the Edge of Art’

This 12 month programme addresses the barriers and perceptions in society that people with a physical or mental health challenge often face when attempting to promote their creativity or follow their creative aspirations and passion.

The programme will focus on emerging artists who are either self-taught or have little or no formal academic training in the arts. These people are artistically talented and are looking to pursue a career in the arts. Through a broad based annual programme, our aim is to bring artists together, no matter what their personal challenges and circumstances, and we will be delivering practical and emotional support to artists through workshops, mentoring sessions, coaching and, as appropriate, 121 or group therapy sessions. This will culminate each year in an annual arts festival/exhibition called ‘Engage in the Arts’ that will be held at the gallery.
