Inside Out Cymru and our partners at the Riverfront, Newport are asking for donations towards the running of the Creative Wellbeing Hub. Now in its third year, the Creative Wellbeing Hub provides craft and creative writing workshops specifically aimed at those struggling with their wellbeing – be that through loneliness, anxiety or other diagnoses. The weekly classes allow participants to meet like-minded people in a non-judgemental, friendly and supportive environment.
Meeting frequently and working towards something together build confidence, optimism and importantly, trust. The creative sessions at the Riverfront Workshops allow participants, artists and wellbeing professionals to get to know each other, giving each other advice and supporting each other in engagement in other wellbeing provision.
If we meet the target of £10,000, the Creative Hub will provide 30 weekly craft sessions, 30 weekly creative writing sessions, 10 weeks of supported making, 20 hours of wellbeing professional AND a public exhibition or performance of works. This can provide up to 1,680 attendances from individuals with sustained wellbeing support, allowing them to really settle with their new skills and confidence and even do things they’ve never done before!
The Big Give’s support will allow Inside Out Cymru to make new relationships with supporters and allow us to explore new avenues of fundraising. Watch this space for more information – including an upcoming raffle with some exciting prizes! We look forward to your support, whether that’s through a donation or even a share of our story.
