Colourful Minds: Art for Wellbeing Programme

Colourful Minds is a creative art course to support mental wellbeing, taking place at the South Hill Centre in Hemel Hempstead. Creative activity can play an essential role in managing mental wellbeing by increasing confidence and reducing anxiety and stress. This course is an opportunity to enhance mental wellbeing by using a variety of art forms in an enjoyable, safe, supportive and friendly environment.

Our next course will run for 12 weeks starting in June 2023 at the South Hill Centre in Hemel Hempstead.

We are funding the course so that it is available at an affordable price for Dacorum residents. It is run by a qualified artist from Herts Inclusive Theatre (HIT), our delivery partner. No experience is needed to take part - all levels, including beginners, are welcome.
