An arts and heritage programme designed to support wellbeing through creative and mindful activities. Curious Minds offers participants the chance to enjoy exploring a variety of art forms whilst developing creative skills and tools to support mental wellbeing. Be inspired by museum collections, share stories and explore creativity with professional lead artist Gillian Allard and supporting artist Lilly Hammond.
The programme will run for 12 weeks with a refreshment break and plenty of opportunities to share, reflect and make social connections throughout the programme. Throughout the programme, artists and professionals from cultural services will guide and support you to learn new skills, gain confidence, make new friendships, be inspired by heritage collections, access other cultural services, and develop tools to support your overall wellbeing.
Courses take place for half a day per week, at Felixstowe library with a 15 minute refreshment break and biscuits!
At the end of the 12 week programme we plan to celebrate with an exhibition of participants’ work at Felixstowe library.
