Isolate and Create

In these strange times, where social connection is not something we can take for granted, many of us are turning to the arts – visual arts, culinary arts, music, novels, theatre, movies and television – to fill in empty hours, keep our spirits up and find things to share online with others. What better proof of the vital role art plays in our lives and societies.

Creating art yourself is an even better way to promote feelings of excitement, productivity, satisfaction and well being. It is a well proven path to positive mental health. We urge all our members to keep creating. Whether masterpieces or work for the rubbish bin, it’s the process that counts. In fact you may well have more fun, and learn a lot more, creating for the rubbish bin!
