Event Details

Reconnect – Wellbeing Programme Shape & Connect for 13 – 16 year olds

6 week course – Wednesday and Thursday 4:30pm – 6pm

Designed to support low level mental health issues including anxiety, emotional wellbeing and promote self confidence through the arts.

We hope to encourage our participants to take ownership of their own personal wellbeing and support building their resilience and coping mechanisms.

Sessions will last for 90 minutes over 6 weeks and we have space for up to 12 participants per session.

Wednesday’s sessions will be all about mindfulness and learning new skills and coping mechanisms e.g. sleep hygiene, movement, mindfulness, body positivity and will be a blend of talks and creativity.

The group will be encouraged to create a journal for the project to explore the self and will include photography sessions.
Thursday’s sessions will be more music based and will include playing and recording music

Participants will be expected to commit to attend both days.

On the 6th and final week we will hold a showcase of work at our gallery at 48 High Street, Newport so all the groups have the opportunity to come together and share their work with invited guests.
