September 2022 – September 2023
We are evaluating Breathe Creative‘s ‘Creativity for Wellbeing’ project, a programme of person-centred creative activity funded by the Arts Council of Wales for 12 months. The sessions take place with participants at a number of organisations across South Wales, led by artists in conjunction with staff at each venue. Each group explores their wellbeing through art forms such as visual arts, animation, mural making, sculpture and video.
The evaluation involved participant observation and interviews with participants, facilitators and organisation staff. Early findings indicate a strong emphasis on personal growth and confidence, skills development, future-building, and social capital. The final report will be available later in 2023.
