We have had to stop running our sessions for now, something we are incredibly sad about but have no choice! Does that stop us!? NO!
We have adapted and are now organising ‘Arts from Home’
We are providing our regular participants with a pack once a month – with art equipment, ideas and inspiration and sometimes a little treat!
Glossop Arts Project
Glossop Arts Project CIC – (GAP) – is a not-for-profit community-based project bringing Art to life!
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.
What We Do
GAP runs weekly creative sessions, mainly, during term-time – our four ‘Arts for Wellbeing’ sessions per-week are for people with long term physical and mental health conditions aged 16 upwards.
We are developing our provision for younger people aged 14-18
Our ‘Hands on Art’ sessions, every Wednesday are for adults with learning disabilities and the first Monday of the Month we host a ‘Club Night’ a social evening for adults with additional needs in a local pub.
A programme of Creative Workshops is being planned, we can be commissioned for therapeutic art sessions and we offer Art Therapy – all subject to availability.

Arts in Ageing
Over the years we have run Arts in Ageing sessions, in sheltered accommodation, care homes and Day cantres.
Arts in Ageing sessions focus on reminiscence, we use themes such as childhood, holidays, different eras or seasons with the group and produce artwork to accompany the discussions . With Dementia Friendly facilitators we provide an inclusive environment.
