The ‘Out There’ Project has been made possible through a grant from the Ecominds Changing Spaces Programme. It is being delivered by Kirkgate Studios and Workshops, a community arts organisation based in Shipley, West Yorkshire.
The aim of the project is to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health distress by helping people with direct experience of mental health distress become involved in community public art projects. These projects aim to improve mental and physical health as well as community spaces.
We will be following the progress of this project on the pages of this blog.
