The Mindfully Creative Programme

Stay Calm and Connected and get Creative – from Home!

Are you anxious, fearful or feeling low about all the uncertainty at this time? Would you like to improve your mental health, build resilience and become more creative?

Use your imagination and your smartphone or camera to explore creative ways of seeing and experiencing what is happening around you and improve your mental health and resilience at the same time.

This booklet offers a selection of arts activities to be done mindfully to help improve your mental well-being, including a 7 day Re-frame Your Now Mindful Photography taster by Ruth Davey from Look Again and video links to music, visual arts and crafts activities for you to do at home.

The activities will help you:

  1. slow down your mind and stay calm
  1. deal with some of the fear and anxiety you may be feeling
  1. build resilience and become more adaptable
  1. create your personal photo story, music or artwork
  1. take positive action

All you need is your eyes, a smartphone or camera, simple art materials and an open mind.
