Thank you Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership

Thanks to funding from the Edinburgh Thrive Arts: Small Grants Programme we’ll be delivering ten workshops during October 2024 around using smartphones for positive mental wellbeing, and although we ourselves at Southside based, participants can be from groups anywhere in the city.

Participants will be supported to develop an understanding of how photography can be a useful tool to support positive mental wellbeing, followed by time to take photographs in & around our community centre, exploring the theme of ‘In/Visible’. Our photographer shall provide advice and practical support on taking great images.

The ‘In/Visible’ theme is a chance to explore what it means to be ‘visible’ or ‘invisible’ when we think about our mental health. Which aspects of our mental health we keep hidden and which we feel able to share for example.
