Arty-Folks inspires adults who feel at a low point in life and are struggling with mental health challenges to realise their full potential and lead fulfilling lives through the visual arts and peer support.
Covid-19 didn’t stop them from doing what they love most – connecting and creating with their members. Mental stress is a very human reaction to distressing life situations and Arty-Folks believes that sometimes we need to support each other to push through. They bring people together to share life experiences and through the creative process they help them strengthen identity and control over their lives and futures.
Arty-Folks worked with us on our third cookbook, Secret Dishes From Around the World 3. They collaboratively collected images and created collages and mixed-media artworks for the project.
