About the Creative and Wellbeing Hub

Prospero’s Creative and Wellbeing Hub encompasses several creative activities and mental health support to help maintain the wellbeing of our community members.

Weekly Art for Wellbeing Class
Tuesdays 10-11:30am at the Arc With Rebecca Bush

When we engage with Creativity we access a direct path to Wellbeing. The class is suitable for all levels of artistic experience, including complete beginners.

It is designed to develop imagination, and to facilitate positive discussion linked to the theme which is different each week.  All art materials are provided.

The class is devised and led by Artist Rebecca Bush who is on a mission to connect us all with our unique creative spark!

Free to Prospero Members, £5 for non-members.



Weekly Inclusive Mindful Wellbeing
Classes with Beth Wood and Tina Slaughter

Mindful Wellbeing is a weekly inclusive online feel-good class designed and delivered by Beth Wood, Director of Mind Fitness and co-author of the hugely successful Unlock You.

Each week is a stand-alone class, but the benefits are deeper if you are able to attend regularly.

The Mindful Wellbeing sessions sit within Prospero’s Wellbeing Hub and combine a mixture of learning and doing, creating a nurturing and inclusive setting that will support you to cope with challenges and live your best life.
