Supporting Wellbeing by Making
SWM is a collective of three recent graduates from three principal backgrounds. Combining our experiences in art, music and dance we want to bring the gift of creativity to the community. We have previously collaborated on creative projects, working together to host interactive installation in The Studio and hosting workshops at the Waterfront festival. Individually we have gained transferable skills from community experiences in music, art and movement workshops held in various locations across the UK. We are utilising all of the skills that we have gained from these experiences to create a local collective which aims to promote confidence, teamwork, creative expression and mental well-being amongst participants.
