Well Arty is a unique project, which gives individuals the opportunity to experience a creative outlet through poetry, music, art, drama and dance.
The project aims to increase confidence, self-awareness and well-being. We recently funded the project (based in Bury, Bolton and North Manchester) in order to help them to continue as a group and strengthen the project.
Well Arty is a non-profit company that delivers creative arts based projects and workshops for communities, with an emphasis on health and well-being. The group provides expertise in singing, music, creative writing and drama, and has a database of artists from a variety of disciplines such as painting, film making, dance etc.
Well Arty believe creative activities are effective in many ways, whether utilised as a preventative technique for mental health difficulties, as a channel for personal expression and positive social interaction, or as a tool for public health education.
The group aims to provide skilled artists who are experienced at working with people from all parts of society in ways that are sensitive to their needs. approach that has comfort and kindness at its heart, but that also encourages people to step out of their comfort zones to facilitate personal growth.
