Welcome to Brighton Creativity & Wellbeing Week!

I’m guessing you’re here because you love creative stuff, or you want to love it, and you’re interested in finding out, or re-confirming how to feel better by being creative. Life is about thriving, right? Reducing stress, taking timeout to reflect and learning more about how we relate to ourselves and the world helps us to move on from difficult times and celebrate the awe and wonder of life.

‘Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Now I am wise, so I’m changing myself’ Rumi

It all starts with you. What will you choose from our wonderful local programme this year?

This programme of events aims to bring together, on one platform the brilliant work of local arts organisations AND local independent wellbeing practitioners who use the arts in their work to support their clients.

Here’s the programme! Get creating x
