Arts and health
Theatr Clwyd has an ambitious Arts and Health programme to support people using the arts with their health and wellbeing. We partner with the local health board and health charities to develop bespoke projects that support people’s mental and physical health.
Here are a few of our projects:
Arts from the Armchair
Our Arts from the Armchair workshops, developed in partnership with Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, help participants and their loved ones to cope and adjust. The positive and empowering workshops explore a range of creative activities to help to stimulate declining brain and memory function, build self-confidence and give a shared joyful experience, creating new, meaningful memories.
Participants have created masks with our wardrobe teams, gone backstage on the set of Home, I’m Darling and painted some of the set of Mold Riots with our scenic team.
Look out for our fundraising campaign on 30 Nov - 7 Dec to see how you can help us secure much needed support for this important project. We’re taking part in The Big Give Christmas Challenge so donations made this week will be doubled! See here for more information.
Supported by Lyan Packaging and Arts & Business Cymru.
Dance, Drama and Music for Neurological Conditions
Started during the pandemic this group meets online and participants join from across Wales. The group puts together dance sequences using their favourite things as inspiration such as holidays and music. Their dance moves are accompanied by a live musician who improvises to their movement.
Singing for Soul
Created to support people living with chronic mental health conditions, participants are referred by the local health board. The group has commented on the fantastic benefits that they receive from attending including the friendships they have made.
“It’s not medicine as such but it’s still medicine to me as it’s joyful and that’s the main thing for me.”
A donation to Theatr Clwyd helps us to continue our Arts and Health programme and ensure that more people living with health conditions are supported with the arts.
