Multi-sensory arts & wellbeing sessions to participants.
Devised & Delivered by visual artist Jamila Walker &
qualified yoga teacher & artist Emily Wilkinson.
Resources - PDF Audio tracks featuring music, creative exercises & meditations.
Our aim is to help people connect with their natural creativity, feel good about themselves & improve wellbeing (physically, mentally & emotionally) whilst having fun.
As well as giving participants a physical and creative experience, we aim to create a digital toolkit & creative resources for positive body awareness so that everyone we work with contributes to something of longer term value.
“The arts provide a route to better health and wellbeing while health
provides a route to the arts that can help to overcome persistent inequalities of access.”

The empowering nature of these sessions could be beneficial to those that engage with films/audio/PDFS, as well as adults/familes who are experiencing unemployment, mental health issues, body image issues, or other factors which may make people vulnerable.
Within a body positive & creative space, we aim to build self esteemand spark inspiration whatever participants’ circumstances may be.
