Creative Wellbeing Art Studio

Wednesdays: 2pm - 4pm
Fridays: 11am - 1pm

Our Creative Wellbeing Art Studio will enable members to focus on their own independent creativity for wellbeing practice. There is an option to bring your own theme for exploration or to use the weekly ‘themed’ activity outlined by the programme leaders or visiting artist.


Here you can take a look back at the programmes we have run up to now. 

If any of these spark your interest, feel free to get in touch with us at hello@insideoutcommunity.com and we can discuss bringing them back for 2025. It’s important to us as a charity to always be listening to our Members. We are here for you and governed by you so please let us know if there’s something we used to offer that you would like to see back as part of our regular programme.

"Expressing ourselves through art - whether it's painting, writing, music, or any other medium - can help us break through difficulties and discover new perspectives on life. It's not just about creating, it’s about finding something within ourselves that we didn't know existed before."

Creative Mentoring

Programme now complete
All the places we had provision for have now been filled so we are unable to take any further participants for this service at this time. 

Creative mentoring offers one-to-one sessions for members who cannot attend our community groups for a variety of reasons.  
This is an offshoot of the Inside Out Community programme, and was set up to overcome potential barriers some members may have in accessing our workshops. 
Over the course of ten weeks, an artist or other creative mentor will work with the member on a creative project of their choice in their own home, or other suitable venue.  
Creative Mentoring is run in association with our partners YLOH.

Queens Award for Voluntary Service 2021

In 2021, our community and volunteers were awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service with a special recognition award for their work during the Covid 19 Pandemic.
We could not have done this without the incredible support of our wonderful volunteers and this award is a testament to their hard work and commitment. So from the whole Team at Inside Out Community, thank you.
