My Care My Way: Art for Wellbeing

ACAVA is delighted to announce two new projects for 2017. Building on the success of St Charles: Art for Wellbeing NHS West London Clinical Commissioning Group have asked ACAVA to work with local people, over 50, living in the south of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Queens Park and Paddington, to make permanent art works for the Integrated Care Centre at the Violet Melchett Clinic.

Two projects will run between January and May 2017, culminating in an event to celebrate the newly installed works of art as part of London Creativity and Wellbeing Week in June 2017. Screen Printing with Heather Martin will run on Monday afternoons, 2pm - 4pm from 16th January until the 20th February. These sessions will be hosted by SMART, at The Basement, 15 Gertrude Street, London, SW10 0JN. Participants will learn how to print using hand cut paper stencils and will create a print to take home and a print to be framed for permanent display. Heather will also use images created during the sessions to make a series of digitally printed wall art pieces to be displayed on-site at various WLCCG services.

Mosaics with Emily Fuller will run on Tuesday mornings, 10:30 - 12:30, from 28th February until the 23rd May (with a break for Easter). These sessions will take place at ACAVA's Studio 1, 54 Blechynden St, London, W10 6RJ. As these sessions will run in the north of the catchment area, transport arrangements can be made for participants travelling from the south if required.

To register your interest in either of these projects please contact iniven@acava.org or call 0208 960 5015.
