A bit about this project:
Covid 19 forced my art school business online. The people I help, continue to be able to enjoy their sessions and the sense of community that these bring.
It’s given me the insight that there are a group of people who would not have been able to take part in my sessions as I used to run them i.e. in my studio. They may not have been able to make the journey or physically sit in the studio….or found the actual class so stressful that they would not have enjoyed it or felt the benefit.
It started to make me think about people who are socially isolated, vulnerable and anxious. Perhaps the fact that they are, has caused them to be physically unwell, or that a physical illness has caused their anxiety.
Anxiety does not discriminate. It can effect, people of any age, background, gender, ethnicity. This is an issue close to my heart as I have several people in my life who have suffered from this crippling illness.
This helped me come up with the idea of 'Together in art'. This is a programme which allows people suffering from anxiety, who love art, to pick up a hobby that they could not have started in 'normal' circumstances.
I pitched my idea at an amazing event called #dansoup and won second prize. I am going to use the prize to award 4 people month-long art school scholarships to people suffering with anxiety in the Nottingham and Derbyshire area.
