The forum was formed by the Arts & Mental Health charity, Chilli Studios Ltd, and was originally also open to similar partnered studios supporting mental health in the North East like North Tyneside Studio and RTprojects in Sunderland. It makes sense to share a community resource rather than duplicate. More voices supporting each other and more creativity!
UPDATE: Chilli Studios have made the decision to open the forum and live workshops further to those who would benefit from this resource and are experiencing mental health issues.
All new members will have to fill in a more basic version of our membership form to ensure we support on an individual basis, maintain good practise and create a safe space for all using the resources. This form is to support those wishing to join in Chilli Studios Creative activities during the Covid19 crisis.
Link to form: https://forms.gle/H1fkqRYFXjoof9rK7
Future membership of the service, following the removal of restrictions, will require a new more extensive form to be filled in if members wanted to use the venue based services.
There is no charge attached to our current online service until the end of August 2020 but some activity may be restricted.
Our current offer includes:
- Access to our Online forum community and activity
- Access to 3-7 live interactive workshops a week and basic technical support
(see timetable www.chillistudios.co.uk)
Occasional & optional:
- check-ins and signposting
- postal art
