What we do
Have you ever thought you'd like to draw when visiting museums and art galleries in Cambridge; but felt it would be much nicer to not do it alone? Then Art Adventure is for you!
You will visit various venues with a likeminded, welcoming group where you will be able to draw from the images and artefacts in a supportive environment.
Our Creative Café is an informal and friendly drop-in that is open to everyone, though we particularly encourage people who may be experiencing anxiety, depression or looking to develop social connections to come along!
Creative Café @ Cambridge Junction - runs on the second Wednesday (13:00-15:00) and the last Tuesday (10:30-12:30) of the month in the foyer.
Creative Café @ The Norris - runs on the second Monday of the month (10:30-12:30). NEW from June 2023!
Michaelhouse Singers is our welcoming community choir, open to anyone with a mental health condition and their carers, friends and family. Young people over the age of 12 years are very welcome to attend with an accompanying adult.
We meet on Friday afternoons at the St Michael's Church (Michaelhouse Centre) in Cambridge. Please contact us for more details.
Arts on Prescription
Our 12-week programme of arts workshops for adults over the age of 18 who are experiencing mild to moderate anxiety, depression and/or stress. It is run in a variety of venues in Cambridge, St Ives and Peterborough, and online.
Led by a professional artist and a qualified counsellor, this programme offers the chance to explore working with a wide range of materials and techniques - no experience necessary!
Our pottery group provides a safe and therapeutic environment for anyone diagnosed with dementia or other neurological challenges, and their carers. Sessions allow our members to enjoy success within a safe and social setting, experiencing handling clay and being guided to create objects that are then glazed and professionally fired.
No experience is necessary and we meet at St Martin's Church Centre in Cambridge on Friday afternoons. Please contact us for more details.
