Visit to The Resource Centre – Charities, Art and much more

Today, I had a brilliant visit to this vibrant centre supporting a mix of social enterprise, charities, voluntary groups and micro commercial enterprises.

The visual arts class produce some fantastic pieces of art, some of which rotates through my office to showcase it. This class helps to provide support to a group of individuals who would otherwise struggle. Individuals gain confidence and are able to express themselves where normally they might not be able. Brilliant.

I visited the new sound proof musical studio and  met representatives of an art charity working with those who have mental health issues.

Finally, it was my pleasure to talk to a three man company called PrescriptionPR who specialise in promoting music groups. They have some well know groups on the books including .

  • Loudon Wainwright III
  • Ringo Starr
  • The Small Faces
  • T.Rex
  • The Kinks
  • Dusty Springfield
  • Marvin Gaye
  • Elvis Costello
  • Serge Gainsbourg
  • Roger Waters
  • Sandy Denny
  • Steve Miller Band
  • Status Quo
  • Supertramp
  • Traffic
  • Richard Ts & The News
  • Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Impressive.

  1. The arts charity working with people who have mental health problems is called Arts & Minds and you can find out more here:

    http://www.artsandminds.org.uk or 01223 353053

    We would love to hear from you and look forward to some further discussions at County level to support our work.
    By 2020 Mental Health will be the second largest health challenge faced in the UK, just behind Heart Disease and ahead of Cancer….it deserves more attention and a larger profile.
