Program: Wellbeing From Studio to Community
Vital Sign: Belonging & Engagement
Total Grant: $11,750
The Pandora Arts Collective Society‘s project will produce twice weekly inter-generational facilitated studio art sessions (in two half-year cycles). The sessions focus on supporting individuals from age 14 to senior who are struggling with mental health issues, and any others who would find a regular, safe, understanding and creative community important to their wellbeing. This project will benefit 40 to 50 individuals over the year with 12 to 20 individuals per week participating in any single studio day. It will also offer two participant/community outreach experiences (exhibitions and workshops) that together will affect more than 450 community members.
