Creativity & Wellbeing Week
This year we’re taking part in London’s Creativity & Wellbeing Week, running a number of events at Kentish Town Health Centre. See below for what we have going on and get in touch if you’d like to take part.
Monday 12th June 2017
Wellbeing in the Workplace
10.30am — 3.30pm, £5 (£2 concessions)
Book a place
Devised by artist Barbara Dean, this wellbeing in the workplace workshop guides participants through the creative journey, using painting and walking as vehicles to challenge expression. No arts experience is necessary, just an openness to learn a new way of connecting with others. Come and share your strategies for workplace wellbeing!
All protective gloves & aprons will be provided. Please wear comfy clothing as we will be quite active.
An informal peer group for artists exploring health and well-being in their practice. The group is open to emerging and established artists and is a place to share thoughts, ideas and works in a non-judgmental and open environment.
Wednesday 14th June 2017
2pm — 4pm, Free but book a place
Run by artist Victoria Coster, Drawing Sound is open to those with or without the experience of tinnitus. We will use actual, remembered and perceived sound to form the basis of image making. Combined with relaxation and breathing techniques to connect through the body, we will explore how drawing can be used to release stress.
Victoria’s exhibition, Tintinnabulation, will run Monday — Friday (9am — 6.30pm). This work explores her experience of tinnitus after being artist in residence at the health centre for 3 months, combining sculpture, photography, film and other multidisciplinary techniques.
Thursday 15th June 2017
