Supporting and enabling creative and diverse projects that benefit our local communities
Following our success with the Elderly workshop with Age UK and Children Workshop with the Westminster Library, The Kindness Studio would like to grow this project further by developing original content and provide 10 free art workshops for both the elderly and children community in Westminster. Running in Marylebone library since 2019, the kindness studio will organise 5 free monthly workshop for the children Each month the workshop will focus a theme such as zero waste, upcycling, endangered animals to inspire the young mind to be kind to Mother Earth . Working with Memory Cafe and Aged UK, the kindness studio will organise 5 workshop for the elderly. Designed with a Neurologist, the activities will target to help the elderly to combat neurodegenerative disease by improving their memories, mobility through calligraphy, Pastel Art therapy. It can be an opportunity for the elderly to make new friends and improve their quality of life through art.
