Arts to help you feel better

Welcome to Artlift. For adults living with mental health challenges, chronic pain and / or cancer, we offer a creative space through which they can move forward thanks to the experience of the artists, the relaxed atmosphere, and the personalised approach.

‘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’.

Artlift runs courses and creative projects for anyone registered with a doctor in Gloucestershire.

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.  Click here to find out more.
