Pablos Partnership November 2011

Pablos Art Studio provides people who have experience of mental illness with free materials, tuition and support to make art. Voice Arts Trust delivered a number of drama-based workshops to willing and interested artists. Our aim was to provide artists with an experience of a creative process driven by the voice and body, to encourage new forms of self-expression and build confidence.  Here is some feedback from the participants:

  • I felt my brain stretch for the first time in four years. It was a chance to try new things.
  • It was a safe place to take a risk.
  • I felt more accepted here at Pablos.  I think it accelerated the process of feeling part of the Pablos group.
  • It has helped me bring more ideas to the studio, I have more spontaneous ideas to work on.
