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 calling for expressions of interest from creative practitioners specialising in visual arts to facilitate a series of online workshops with our service users in each region from July to September 2021.
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.
