Creativity in Nature

A FREE Programme for Young People (aged 13-25) - strengthen your emotional wellbeing by engaging in Nature and creative activities.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE WILL CONTINUE TO OPERATE THROUGHOUT COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS.

The benefits of being outside in nature are plentiful – stress alleviation, relaxation and the reduction in symptoms of depression are just a few. It also helps social interaction so you make friends more easily and feel less isolated. 

Why don’t you join us for four weekly FREE 2-hour sessions. Slow down and reconnect with yourself and your environment in this nature-based, discovery led programme.

Typical activities include walks, some light conservation work or gardening. This would be combined with a range of nature focused creative activities designed to improve mental and emotional wellbeing. You do not need to be good at art to benefit from creating and exploring the art materials. There will be time to talk and share collective struggles if you wish to.

“The programme has helped me see more of me and less of my disorder. It brought back my identity, as I remembered I have interests that I thought I lost due to my disorder. It helped me refocus on a task, activity or learning process and had a really positive impact on my wellbeing ” quote from young person who attended programme.

Nature is pleased with simplicity
