We know creativity is a great outlet for stress, building resilience whilst also helping us to manage feelings of anxiety and low mood. And of course, many of us find making things to be relaxing and enjoyable anyway. You overwhelmingly told us in a recent survey that the arts are what you need right now… which is why we would like to invite you to take part in our new weekly arts club!
We’re encouraging everyone to take part in dedicating just two hours to spend getting creative each week. With no enrolment needed and from the comfort of your own homes, you might make some visual art, write a poem, craft something, write a song - the choice is yours.
Instructions on how to take part:
Take good quality images of the work (but please don't include yourself in the photo). Upload it to social media and tag us in (@HFTRecoveryCol on Twitter, or search Humber Recovery College on Facebook) using #RCArtCircle. You can also email things to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll share what you show us through our social media channels and later on in an online gallery on our website.
We are also exploring the possibility of an optional group video/voice call for the future (so we can be in each other’s virtual company whilst we get creative) - we’re not quite there yet but watch this space!
Can’t wait to seeing what you create!
