Artlift – Creating better lives

Artlift offers creative space for adults living with mental health challenges, chronic pain and / or cancer. We run courses and creative projects for anyone registered with a doctor in Gloucestershire, where our experienced artists offer a personalised approach in a relaxed atmosphere through which participants can move forward.

Artlift also provides residencies and Workplace Wellbeing packages to support the mental health of staff in the corporate and statutory sectors in these challenging times. 

I had no experience of art before this, but now I love it and it has been a cathartic process in dealing with my past and a distraction from my current health problems.
