SOUTHEND: NETPARK WELLBEING PROJECT – WORKSHOPS

Opening: 04/06/17 – 31/12/18 | Free

Metal and Southend Borough Council public health team have come together to create an innovative project based at Metal Art School working with NetPark, the world’s first digital art park in Chalkwell Park.

The NetPark Wellbeing Project bring the arts and the outdoors together to foster a greater sense of wellbeing for people living with mental health concerns or dementia.  Open to individuals and groups, we run a wide range of sessions every week from Monday to Wednesday.

We can offer a one-off experience or a series of sessions introducing making art, telling stories, photography and/or music created in response to the art experienced in NetPark.

Sessions are typically on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday’s – mornings 10am – 12noon / afternoons 1pm – 3pm.  Details of our current sessions are below.

In the new year we hope to run:
A group for people living with mental health conditions  – Mon 1.30- 3.30
A group for carers – Tues 1.30- 3.30
A group for people living with mental health conditions – Wed 1.30- 3.30
A group for people living with PTSD- Wed 1.30- 3.30

All sessions are FREE.
