Healthy Arts

Connecting Creativity & Wellbeing
A not-for-profit consortium of freelance artists delivering bespoke creative projects and workshops in:
Visual Arts – Theatre & Dance – Music – Writing – Digital Art

“The difference Healthy Arts has made to our lives is phenomenal. I wish we had access to them years ago. If there were more groups and sessions made up of dedicated caring people like Healthy Arts, the country’s health and wellbeing would be greatly improved” (AB, Workshop Participant)

Whether it’s a one-off or a series of workshops, we can run the perfect project to suit your needs. We have a strong track record of working with residents with mental health issues, learning disabilities and those who are isolated or vulnerable. Our workshops can be considered to be therapeutic with the added value of learning new skills and gaining confidence for participants.

Current work includes:
'MemorabLeigh' (Heritage & Reminiscence) at the Old Grammar School, Leigh; 'Platform' (New writing & theatre);
'Paperback Writers' & 'The Dark Writers' (Creative Writing); Leigh Photographers

We also help organisations to develop bespoke creative & artistic packages. Recent partners include: Bedford High School; Three Towers Academy; Power in Partnerships; Bridgewater Community Healthcare; SKILS CIC; Headway; Stroke Association; Friends of Lilford Park; Higher Folds Community Centre; Leigh Spinners; Chapter One Tearooms.
