Arts and Minds

Back to Activities

Arts and Minds uses the arts to support the positive wellbeing of individuals and communities. They run a range of arts-based programmes and activities across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and online, no previous skills needed.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • creative engagement can improve confidence and self-esteem
  • creative engagement promotes social connectedness
  • it provides opportunities for you to experiment with different materials and learn new skills

“It was unexpected how much the sessions made a positive impact on my wellbeing.”

“Learning that I have a creative side and having this time for me.”

What to expect?

Arts and Minds are a small, friendly and welcoming team who will support you in registering for one of their arts-based programmes.

They provide both virtual and face-to-face Arts on Prescription programmes that usually run between 6-12 weeks. These are facilitated by a skilled artist and an experienced counsellor.

There are usually up to 12 in a group and carers may attend and join in, should they wish.

Arts materials are provided and these are sent through the post for virtual programmes.
