The story behind RE Imagine

RE Imagine asks you to step in to a new relationship ....... with your wellbeing, alongside others in an environment you may not think of when considering your mental health. There has been a worldwide movement where art therapists bring their work to non-clinical, cultural settings such as museums and galleries for over a decade. Research in this work has shown many benefits, including the following:

 

  • enhanced self esteem, self awareness, sublimation, socialisations skills, introspection and creativity * 

  • dynamic relationships through the provision of 'safe space, pleasure and time for reflection and bonding' **

  • inspire people's stories, value of self and view 'identity' from different perspectives

  • validation, commonality, friendship and genuineness
