WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF THE CREATIVE PROCESS TO STRENGTHEN THE SPIRIT
Inside Out is an arts and mental health charity founded in 2003. In 2021 we received the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service for the tireless efforts provided by our volunteer team during the Covid 19 Pandemic.
We are committed to providing programmes throughout the year for people drawn to the therapeutic arts as a way of improving and sustaining their mental health and well being. We are based in Ipswich UK and our programmes take place mainly in East Suffolk. Participants are mainly people recovering from periods of mental ill-health and those who live with a continuing vulnerability to episodes of psychological distress.
All workshops are free or by donation only and open to any participants without a prior referral. In a safe, non-judgemental environment, participants engage in an artistic activity and receive beneficial effects of therapeutic arts.
We are committed to promoting the benefits of arts for mental health in the wider population. Putting the creative process at the heart of healing and recovery.
Collaboration and accessiblity for all is a really important part of what we do and we are continuously look for opportunities to connect with other communities and groups.Our Weekly Workshops:Moving Minds
