PEACE of Mind is a programme of events Rural Arts are running throughout the months of September and October to promote mental wellbeing and open conversations up around mental health.
The project is funded by North Yorkshire County Council’s Suicide Prevention Grant.
In September, which is Suicide Prevention Month, we will be hosting the brilliant show “We are What We Overcome” by Matthew McGuinness, as well as running a dance workshop and a visit from the animals at Aquatic Finatic.
Throughout September and October, we will also be running a host of creative activities, including soap-making, printmaking, painting and more!
Not only that but all events are free of charge, so all you must do is book on at ruralarts.org. Some of these workshops are offered as drop-in sessions, so you are welcome to stay for as long as you feel comfortable.
You can find out more about what activities are on offer on our workshops page as well as more information on artists, organisations, and mental health resources by taking a look at our PEACE of Mind project booklet that we have developed as a part of the project.
