The Art of Healing

These sessions are aimed at bringing the community together to build strong relationships and improve mental health through the creative process.

Art of Healing at the Artcore Community Hub

Art of healing Community
In Art of healing community sessions, participants have been working with ceramic artist Kathryn Borg, to learn techniques with clay and create their own ceramic ware.

Art of healing Health and Wellbeing
Our artist Jane Dearden will be facilitating a peace-themed workshop on the 5th of April. In this workshop, the group of participants contributed to the design of our ‘peace pages’ which will be printed and posted to Osnabruck. These pages will be bound into a ‘Peace Book’, along with pages from Osnabruck’s other partner cities. When the Peace Book has been created, it will be displayed in the ‘Peace Hall’ in the Town Hall of Osnabruck, and gifted to the mayor of Osnabruck at the beginning of Maiwoche festival, Osnabruck’s biggest annual street festival.

Art of healing, Children and young people
Artist Nicki Dennett has been leading fun workshops for children aged 6- 15. Children were encouraged to make bird feeders and dream catchers which they all thoroughly enjoyed.
