Art & Soul @ HOME

At HOME in Central Manchester you'll currently find an exhibition of work created by Art & Soul, our longest-standing art group, to celebrate 15 years of working together.
Art & Soul is comprised of members who are based in areas across Rochdale who come together regularly in Heywood, where we're based, to practise their craft and learn new artistic skills in order to benefit their wellbeing.
This is part of our Art for Wellbeing programme, which delivers creative activities that support health and wellbeing with all ages (from 2 to 102). Cartwheel Arts have a track record in delivering high quality arts and health interventions, and our Art for Wellbeing practice is disseminated to practitioners across Greater Manchester through peer support, online training and through the Live Well Make Art network.

This programme aims to support artists who face significant barriers to the art world due to health, disability, social circumstance or isolation. We've been supporting artists through the Art for Wellbeing programme since 2008. and Art & Soul have been a prominent feature of this programme throughout. We're passionate about reducing barriers by providing local artistic delivery and exhibiting art work to boost confidence and promote the local talent Rochdale Borough has to offer. 

The work shown in the Inspire Gallery is created by Art & Soul members: Cloe, Das, David Greenwood, Kila, Kathryn, Lee Tarrant, Liz, Lorna McFarland, Maggie, Spencer Turner, Tim and Victoria.

To see more of their work, you can find them on, who kindly captured some of the artists’ work for this exhibition.

The Art & Soul exhibition can be found at HOME until 5th June.
