Creative Directions and We Create

Creative activities help adults to develop and maintain good mental health

A man is painting a selection of flowers using watercolour paints at a session with darts in Doncaster.

This film celebrates Creative Directions and We Create; our creative programmes for adults who want to develop and maintain good mental health, make connections with others and build confidence.

Our weekly sessions ran in Edlington, Mexborough and Doncaster Town Centre, with creative activity happening in a variety of venues including community centres, parks, Mexborough railway station and allotments!

Professional musicians, poets, drama facilitators and artists collaborated with local residents to devise new songs, art works and poems that celebrated their local communities – past, present and future. Through sustained weekly engagement we improved people’s wellbeing and developed their connections with others.

Sessions were made possible thanks to funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, Spirit of 2012 and NHS Doncaster Clinical Commissioning Group.
