Culture for Well-Being

Culture for better mental health
Arteffact is a unique project in North Wales using museum and archive collections to inspire creativity and promote mental well-being.  This project specifically aims to help people age 18 and over who are living in the community and experiencing stress, depression or anxiety.
Arteffact is a course of creative workshops that take place in museums, galleries and archives.  A professional artist leads each workshop and participants are encouraged to develop their creativity by engaging in projects stimulated by the collections.  The unique mix of inspirational surroundings, beautiful and fascinating artefacts, good company, creative work and a supportive atmosphere all contribute to an increased sense of well being for participants.
‘I can get rid of all my anxiety … lose myself in what I am doing’
Arteffact founder member and Deputy Director of Bodelwyddan Castle Trust, Morrigan Mason, says: “Arteffact offers an alternative way for people to manage their mental health. The benefits of taking part in cultural activities on mental health and well being are well documented.  Our courses offer participants a way to connect to their culture and heritage through art”.
Arteffact 2015 is running four 12-week courses in four venues from May and June.  The courses are at Oriel Ynys Môn, Caernarfon Archive, Conwy Archive and Bodelwyddan Castle.  The courses are fully funded and all materials are provided.  To find out more, contact Maria Hayes (Arteffact Manager) on or call 01766 830049 / 07817 297922.

The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it won't disappoint me as much as this one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, nonetheless I genuinely believed you would probably have something helpful to say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something you can fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.
