It was going to feature buzz-inducing live entertainment and music alongside an uplifting programme of creative sessions that are scientifically proven to make you feel better. In partnership with mental health organisations and practitioners from across Gloucestershire, we were planning to delve deeper into ways creativity can support good mental health through groups, workshops and talks.
However, given these extraordinary times our plans have had to change. Covid19 has devasted the theatre industry, with The Roses hit hard alongside so many of our high street businesses, and we are looking at possible closures into next year and no live shows.
But, if there was ever a time we needed to feel good and support our mental health, it’s right now. So we’ve decided to launch our Feel Good Festival early!
We’re looking for local creative practitioners to develop and deliver online masterclasses and workshops to inspire people to help build a time capsule that captures in art our community’s experiences of life in lockdown.
Could you deliver an online session on your chosen artform? We’d love to hear from you - no previous experience of teaching is necessary as we will support you with this. Just buckets of enthusiasm and a willingness to try.
Whether it’s short story writing, painting, chocolate sculpture, knitting or graphic novel creation we want to encourage creativity of all kinds.
We’ll also be running competitions, providing free online workshops and much more, to help everyone in the area FEEL GOOD!
