Postal Projects

Postal Projects designed by our Art for Wellbeing practitioners for independent adults looking for a creative way to enhance their wellbeing at home.

 

 

How it works

The artist working on the project designs about 8 cards with different activities based around a theme (e.g. Drawing) and gets them printed and delivered to their home, as well as sourcing and ordering materials to go with the activities.

The Emotional Support Worker (ESW) and coordinator then have introduction conference calls with the referral partner and referred participant to introduce the project and our voices. This provides us with a finalised list of engaged participants to whom we send a starter pack with a sketchbook, information and the Week 1 activity and materials.

Over the following 8 weeks the ESW calls each participant for a 15minute catch up where they help with as much as they can from signposting to motivation. Once the ESW has called everyone they update the artist who sends out the next activity and corresponding materials with a personalised note. 

 

“Cartwheel Arts is my first option for mental health support.”

Just a little note from all the staff team at Cartwheel Arts to say that we hope you are all well during this challenging time.

Cartwheel’s work has always centred around the power of human connection so we are fully aware of the impact that the distancing may be having.

We are working hard behind the scenes to devise a way of offering these creative connections in another format, as a temporary measure, and will keep you updated when we have something to share.

Following advice from the government, the Cartwheel team are all working from home. The office phone isn’t being manned, but we can pick up voicemails if you leave one, and we are answering emails.

This time will pass, and when it does we can’t wait to see you all and use art as a way to heal and reconnect.
