Now We’re Talking with Art is a new campaign spreading positivity, highlighting mental health support and encouraging people to get out, exercise and support local businesses too. Organised by Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, which provides mental health services across both counties, the campaign has enlisted the support of a range of local partners, including businesses, art groups and local councils.
There are loads of ways you can get involved including:
- Free public outdoor art trails – A series of art trails will weave through our local high streets and open spaces starting with Worcester City in May, Redditch in July and Hereford later this summer.
- Art Competitions – The team are also running an art competition for adults and children, with winning entries featuring on the trails.
- Art and wellbeing resources – You can access a range of art sessions and workshops from painting, mindfullness sewing and activities for the family.
The last 12months have been really tough, and we hope the Now We’re Talking with Art campaign will bring a bit of brightness back into our lives.
