WellBeing Space, St. Helen's
We worked with St. Andrew's Church and Our Warm Welcome in St Helen's in 2017/18 on a creative community cohesion project. Through the Wellbeing Space, a weekly arts and crafts group was created that continues to meet weekly, art works were made by re-purposing unwanted materials and opportunities for integration and meaningful shared activity were created. The project brought together asylum seekers, refugees and local residents in a shared space. Participants learnt hands on creative skills, making everything from banners to embroidered bags.
