Threading the Landscape

During 2019 and 2020, Edgelands Arts will work with communities in the South East of the district including Kinsley, Fitzwilliam and Hemsworth. Young people, families, older people and the wider community will explore the neighbouring countryside and interlinking paths to share stories, document and map their local and neighbouring area as well as experience the health benefits of creativity, physical exercise and forming social relationships – beyond perceived boundaries of age, location or background. Young people will explore their concerns around anxiety, depression and poor mental health.

Activities will include:

Themed rural and neighbourhood walks
Sharing healthy food, stories, journeys, maps, photography and being creative
Using drama, art and music to create a peer-led theatre in education work about young people’s mental health issues to share in the community.
