Artspace Brighton is an Art and Mental Health charity based in a studio on the Bristol Estate, East Brighton.
Our studio is currently open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am – 5pm. In an acronym we are: Assisting Recovery Through Supportive Participatory Art and Community Engagement.
At Artspace we increase opportunities for people with experience of mental health issues to engage with art activities in a stable and supportive space. We encourage our studio members to decide which creative avenues they wish to pursue, with guidance tailored to their individual interests. Through developing new skills and exploring their creativity, the members of our studio can boost their self-esteem and gain a newfound sense of purpose and meaning in life. At Artspace we combat isolation for people with mental health issues by providing a place in the community where people can develop a sense of belonging and build social and peer networks.
Self referrals are welcomed with a supportive statement from a professional
