When pain persists, you may find yourself becoming more isolated. Pain may prevent you from working, socialising and pursuing interests in the way you would like. Sometimes, the people you are closest to may not fully understand what you are going though.
“I found that the gulf between my own self and my friends and family widened, the longer I experienced pain.” Something Chronic workshop participant. (anonymous)
A shared sense of community is vital for our most basic human needs. We hope that by engaging in our artistic programmes, we can offer a real opportunity to reconnect with our true selves, where pain doesn’t define you.
We believe in the power of a shared experience. Studies have proved that shared experiences, even with new acquaintances, enrich lives and provide positive physical and emotional benefit. We truly believe that the Arts should be accessible to everyone. Being creative is a basic human need.
Although World events are preventing class and group activities at this time we are busy planning our next season of upcoming events and fundraisers. Please keep an eye on our news section for updates.
We are also restructuring internally. If you would like to volunteer with us in the future or submit artwork please get in touch.
