Podcast 24: “Art Plays Such An Amazing Role.”

The new project will see a series of different workshops staged at the Newhampton Arts Centre, all building up to a big exhibition during Recovery Month in September both at the NAC and also the Mander Centre.

With the first group of sessions now completed, the Good Shepherd’s Community & Engagement Worker Kate Penman was delighted to be joined by artist and University of Wolverhampton Masters student Charlotte Webb, and a participant in the project Sally, a service user with SUIT and Recovery Near You who are also involved in the project.

All three shared their own stories around mental health challenges and recovery, and looked back on five incredible weeks which illustrated – quite literally – just how positive a role art can play in people’s lives.
