Evolve is a mental health charity providing affordable counselling and related services to organisations and to those in the local community who either can't afford to pay market rates or wait for a GP appointment, ensuring a lack of funds is no barrier to getting help. We have been working with Evolve since 2021, through provision of supervision sessions, Time Together sessions (supporting A&M team wellbeing), and sourcing counsellors for our Arts on Prescription programmes.
Fullscope is a consortium of charities with a shared mission to improve the mental health and well-being of children and young people in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. Fullscope partners share the vision of positive mental health for all and believe this can only be achieved through collaboration between children, young people, families, specialist organisations and the wider community. Arts and Minds is a founding partner of Fullscope.
In 2019, Galeria Moderna launched The Cambridge Invitational Art Contest & Exhibition ©, choosing Arts and Minds as their local beneficiary charity. 2022 saw the third annual Contest and Exhibition and we’re excited to be working with Galeria Moderna on other exciting projects. Watch this space!
Huntingdon Art Gallery
Huntingdon Art Gallery (H A G) opened in 2022 and showcases selected local artists via curated exhibitions their online platform. It is run by Huntingdon-based artist Emily Jolley. We are grateful to Emily who has partnered with Arts and Minds as their local beneficiary charity. 10% of all sales are donated to Arts and Minds to support 'improving wellbeing through creativity.'
We are working with Cambridge Community Arts, Cambridge Curiosity and Imagination, CUH Arts (Cambridge University Hospitals’ arts-in-health programme), and University of Cambridge Museums. As organisations that meet at the intersection of culture, health & wellbeing we want to recognise and cultivate an ethos of mutual respect between ourselves and our freelance colleagues.
