Our Aim

We offer creative sessions within a stimulating atmosphere to promote freedom of artistic expression, enhance social inclusion and  wellbeing.  Our welcoming, friendly and inclusive principles inspire people to try new activities, learn and improve skills, and build self-confidence.

Straight back into the swing of things after my jollies. After what can only be described as a very hectic morning and being absolutely ran ragged by the cat. I had a smashing time at Arts for Wellbeing earlier this afternoon. It was great fun making my mosaic and I found it extremely theraputic too.

Glossop Arts Project are a fantastic community led organisation who help foster inclusivity and combat loneliness & social isolation. While also providing a platform for our local communities to express themselves freely in a relaxed environment which is open to all. I can't wait for the next session! ☕🖌🍪 #ArtsforWellbeing
