We had a flutter of good news at Artroom recently with funding success from the Social Isolation and Loneliness Fund to continue our work in wards and community settings. The fund will help with three Artroom projects at Woodend, the Health Village and Bonnymuir Green.
Artroom always begins with a conversation and social connection around the table is just as important (if not more so) than mark making, painting and moulding clay. Often, Artroom is the only social interaction that our participants have in a week, so we are delighted to be able to build on the work that we have done and strengthen partnerships and connections we have made.
The funding news and our Bonnymuir Green project were featured in an article in the Press and Journal alongside other projects that received awards. You can read the article here;
