Metal and Southend Borough Council public health team have come together to create an innovative project based at the new Metal Art School in Chalkwell Park and working with NetPark, the world’s first digital art park.
The project will explore how digital arts in an outdoor setting can improve mental health and well-being. Workshops are already underway with Project 49, Summerfield Care Centre, adults with dementia and young carers.
Emma Mills who co-ordinates the programme said “We aim to encourage people who may feel isolated, anxious, lonely or depressed to come and talk to us about having a go with the NetPark digital apps, experiencing new art, learning new skills and basically having fun.”
The project is FREE and open to individuals or groups.
We can offer a one-off experience or a series of sessions introducing and promoting 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.
Please check dates and times before turning up. For all current courses – see our What’s On Page.
