Creative Wellbeing

Communities are at the heart of our work at QUAD. These are the current projects which we run as part of our arts for health programme.

Listen Love Learn

Listen Love Learn is a weekly creative programme for families with children under 5 years.  It aims to enhance the participant’s confidence, support social inclusion and promote positive health and wellbeing, whilst engaging all participants in fun, creative and stimulating activities.   The sessions are very informal and set in a relaxed environment.

• Improve the happiness and well being of the 50+ in Derby through increased participation in the arts. 
• Be a supportive community that create art together whilst raising issues around health and wellbeing.
• Provide activities on a weekly basis.  These might be anything from textiles to photography to film to more craft based arts.
• An opportunity to develop new skills and interests and the artist is on hand to support and offer guidance
