The Art Club aims too engage with the community through creative arts activities and improve their social inclusion and wellbeing. Participants are given the opportunity to express their thoughts through creative arts activities which enhances communication and eliminates the impact of language barrier. This act as a channel to identify hidden health issues which participants are experiencing.
The Art Club has provided a comfortable, relaxed and supportive environment for participants to share their life stories. Partcipating in the activities is an empowering and encouraging experience, which can reduce isolation and keep people in a happy state of mind.
Together the participants produced a colourful Chinese cookbook with recipes and poems. Each individual also made a life journey book. Their artworks were displayed at a Showcase event of Bristol REACH.
