Art and homelessness: Paul Hamlyn Foundation

Paul Hamlyn Foundation

‘In the Margins’ Explore and Test Project

The Wallich’s exciting project, funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, aims to explore and test the impact of a variety of participatory arts opportunities in Mid – North, South East and South West Wales.

We are currently working with creative practitioners specialising in visual arts to facilitate a series of online workshops.

About Arts at The Wallich

The Wallich is a psychologically informed organisation.

This means we see responding to homelessness as more than a roof over someone’s head.

Diversionary activities, such as arts or sport, are often important tools for responding to, and recovering from, trauma.

Many of the people we support have always been very expressive and creative. Developing outlets for this creativity, as a trauma informed approach to ending repeat cycles of homelessness, addiction and mental health crisis, is a priority for The Wallich.
