Further information about the Networks Project:

NETWORKS is a new Creativity Works project based in Bristol, working with professional artists to deliver courses of arts workshops for vulnerable women involved with the criminal justice system or facing mental health issues.

The networks course aims to support service users’ ‘recovery of self’ and self-development in a group setting. A range of creative activities tailored around participants’ interests will develop a range of skills, the ability to engage with others and an increased sense of wellbeing. The project also supports the integration of professional artists within partner settings.

Courses are run in parallel across five settings and are 8 weeks long. Project partners include: Teign Ward (a women’s medium secure unit), Eastwood Park prison (mother & baby unit), One 25 (reaches out to women trapped in street sex work), Rethink (women affected by mental illness), Bristol Drugs Project and cultural partners Arnolfini and Light Box.

A resource developed with participants will allow the sharing of artwork across the courses, creating connections and communications between the women. Visits are arranged to cultural centres in the city, allowing women to feel a stronger sense of community.

Creativity Works is a creative community development agency, delivering quality socially engaged and participatory arts projects. Further courses are being run later in the year. Please contact Deborah Aguirre Jones for further information: dj@creativityworks.org.uk
