Arts and Minds Network

The Arts & Minds Network brings people together to share creativity, knowledge and resources so that arts can flourish in health and social care settings.

The Arts & Minds Network aims to increase public knowledge and understanding of mental health through the arts. We also aim to support individuals receiving health and social care services to access mainstream arts activities across Leeds.

The network is open to everyone with an interest in the role of arts in health. A wide range of people are involved, including those with personal experience of receiving health services, carers, health and social care professionals, artists and many others. We welcome new members, and it’s free and easy to join!

Being a member of the network entitles you to a wide range of benefits, including:

  • discounts at a wide range of arts and crafts shops
  • access to the network’s events programme where you can meet other members and have fun being creative
  • the chance to showcase your artwork at the Arts & Minds annual exhibition
  • receiving the Arts & Minds newsletter and e-mail bulletins with current events and information about creative opportunities you can get involved in.
