Inside Out Community Request
Inside Out Community is engaged in creative workshops focused on the mental health and wellbeing of our members in Ipswitch, Suffolk. Our creative workshops include visual arts, creative writing, music and dance. We believe creative activities helps build confidence, self-esteem and plays a vital role in people’s recovery.
We welcome people from all communities and we work with adults, many of whom experience social isolation, loneliness, anxiety, depression and other mental health challenges.
Through our workshops, our members enjoy creative satisfaction with guidance from professional artists and programme leaders. They also find a sense of community and belonging in a safe and friendly environment.
Our goal is to make creativity a part of people’s daily lives whereby they can gradually develop their own creative practice, improve their mental health and feel self-empowered.
