TERM 2 - CURATING THE MIND
TOWARDS A CREATIVE, HEALTHY MIND
Free Arts Workshops
From April 2019
Curating the Minds is a Kanlungan project funded by the People’s Health Trust. It is anchored within community-working principles and draws on the creative arts to address mental wellbeing.
Our approach is to hold free community-based creative activities and courses to inspire and empower mental health wellbeing amongst the Filipino migrants residing in the areas of Waltham Forest and Newham. Working closely with community partners and local residents, we are offering a supportive and nurturing environment that provides a safe and open platform to address what are often perceived to be difficult and pressing issues in regards the community's psychological, social and mental wellbeing.
Our creative and collaborative approach aim to heighten both the individual and the community’s self-awareness, encourage self-expression, open dialogue, mutual learning and support, through the use of various art and creative media exercises which can be considered as complementary strategies and mechanisms in maintaining good mental wellbeing.
We launched our first Curating the Mind arts exhibition on 17th March 2019 at the Stratford Library.
Our second and final term of free arts workshops has started in April 2019 in our new home at the Stratford Library. Find out when the next one will be and further details by visiting our Facebook page or registering online below.
