Arts and Minds Network

WOW! So I have just looked more into the Arts and Mind Network in Leeds after being introduced to them on Friday at the Light Night in Leeds.
This is the main website however they are in Partnerships with may art and mental health organisations including Time to Change.  Something I have explored before in a second year project creating awareness around Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.  On here is all we need to know about the network, their main belief is following the promotion of health and wellbeing through the arts, and like time to change, really trying to shake off that stigma with mental illness and particularly here mental distress.
“Creativity transforms peoples’ lives”
Any outlet within creativity can keep a healthy mind or wellbeing.
From this some people have indeed sold their own works and gained commissions, a great boost to their self-esteem.
I’ve just signed up to become a member, however yet to receive an email with my login details, so I think I’ll try again or get in contact.
Also there are three artists/performers working closely with the program, I think I need to get into contact with them too. This, as I mentioned during the summer, was one thing I really wanted to try and pluck up the confidence to do. I think it will really benefit my own practice and understanding.
