Fresh Art @ - What next?

Freshart 2015250

Following the success of the Fresh Art @ Hillview Lodge project, the new Fresh Art @ NHS House project is about to be launched.

Fresh Art @ Hillview Lodge was the brainchild of a former service user, who came up with the idea of creating new, original, stimulating pieces of art work as a kind of 'give back' scheme.  From that came the support and expertise of local organisations, community groups and museums, who together ran the Fresh Art @ Hillview Lodge project. This ended up producing more than 60 pieces of art work which are now displayed on the walls of Sycamore Ward and other areas at Hillview Lodge.

Following an Experience Based Design project run by the B&NES Therapies Team, it was highlighted that Bath NHS House would benefit from a similar facelift. Fresh Art @ NHS House are starting a new art project, with their first workshop is taking place on Tuesday 10 March at the Holbourne Museum in Bath. 

If you or anyone you know who has been affected by mental health would like to be a part of this opportunity, please contact a member of the team:
