There is a growing recognition that active engagement in the arts can have positive impacts on the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities.
Through the Festival we want
the whole community to engage with the arts and experience its benefits for mental health and wellbeing
to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing by providing a platform for sharing information and signposting, discussions and art experiences
to enable those affected by mental health issues to come together and make connections, develop confidence and find new sources of support
to highlight the issue of loneliness and social isolation in our community and begin to explore how we as a community can address this
to pursue a longer-term goal to develop community networks and actions that support our residents with wellbeing, resilience and recovery
everyone who takes part to leave better informed, inspired and empowered.
