Art Matters is a community arts studio and centre of: wellbeing and mindfulness.
As part of the mental health chairty, Richmond Fellowship; Art Matters aims to connect communities and provide pathways to recovery.
At the heart of everything we do lies: hope, respect, enabling and inclusion.
The studio offers a personal approach in which artists are encouraged to explore their creativity. In this way artists can develop new skills and confidence.
Enrolment is by referral, please contact the studio for more information.
We offer: an arts residency, opportunities to join Peer Tutor workshops, short courses, artist in residence positions and studio visits.
The relocation group met on the 14th December when Olive reported Richmond Fellowship has received the new lease. It starts from January 1st 2019 and is for one year with a three month break clause. There has been a modest increase in the rent which has been agreed and signed off by the organisation. The three month break clause means the landlord will give us three months notice when he needs us to vacate the building, but having a years lease is positive. Relocation is still a priority and the group will continue to meet.
It was felt that the lease extension gives a little breathing space and an opportunity to consider the longer term vision of Art Matters, as discussed by the Service User Involvement Forum and Chief Exceutive Derek Caren. This work is already underway and will start to be formalised at the TRIP/ Business Plan setting meeting during half term in February.
If you have questions or any information of vacant buildings that may be suitable please speak to staff.
The Art Matters Service User Forum is up to date with the relocation process and together we promise to keep you informed of any news or developments.
