ART31 think there should be a 7th Way to Wellbeing – creativity and the arts. To support this, members of Gulbenkian’s ART31 group have put together four short, stop-motion animations.
Maeve, Anna and Angus from the group said:
”Our animation highlights the benefits the arts have on mental health for those of all ages. Kent County Council created an action plan of 6 ways to promote better mental health in Kent and Medway. We believe a 7th way to wellbeing should introduce the arts as at least 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health issue each year. Therefore our animation features a character who struggles with depression, but after discovering different art forms their mental wellbeing improves.”
