CREATIVE WELLBEING

Wellbeing - What does that mean?

Wellbeing – to us it means feeling good about yourself, able to manage the highs and lows of everyday life and invest a bit of time for things that we enjoy and helps us feel content. Taking part in activities that mean something to us as an individual, whether something new to discover or explore, or that grows and develops a skill or interest, supports how we feel in ourselves and engage with the world and others around us. It’s unsurprising therefore that cultural activities, whether the arts, sports, entertainment, being in the natural environment or something else benefits us personally, supports our mental and physical health and communication with other people. It’s simply part of our culture as human beings and society.

Whilst some might be looking for opportunities to learn a creative skill for progression and self-education, it’s equally valid just to take part for enjoyment and health and wellbeing benefits with skills and knowledge a more secondary purpose. All of our activities can be taken up for this reason and we will support and shape participation around what each person is trying to achieve for themselves at a particular point in their lives.

If wellbeing, socialising and enjoyment are your principle goal, you can get creative through individual opportunities or take part in a group activity, try something new or explore something you already know, the choice is yours. For some there will be additional goals for personal health and we will help you find an outlet for your creative skills to suit.
