May & June Dates!

Art with Heart Creative Workshop

Wednesday 11th May, 2pm @ The Hut

Award-winning Art with Heart will be running a creative session with Creative Recovery!

Art with Heart are currently developing their new theatre production, Declaration with The Lowry Theatre Manchester.
Declaration is a raw, honest and hopeful exploration of ADHD, mental health and diagnosis and need your help!
Autobiographically written, with comedy, storytelling and conversations with audiences, Art with Heart are looking for people to give them feedback on their work. They will be sharing 20 minutes of Declaration, asking for feedback and running a short creative workshop to discuss diagnosis and mental health

There will be limited spaces to 15 people, if you would like to take part please contact the office on 01226 320147.

Instinctive, curious, bold and bouncy; Sarah is a mighty proud square peg, which wouldn’t be such a problem if the hole wasn’t so damn round.

Sarah grew up feeling different. Her childhood Doctor thought it was sugar. Her current Doctor thinks its ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder). Sarah still feels different, so what will a label do? Will it change the way you see her and the way she sees herself?

Developed in consultation with medical professionals, ADHD and mental health support groups, 'Declaration' examines when we want, need or are forced to declare our differences, and the faces we wear to fit in.

Declaration takes you on vibrant and daring adventure that asks you to roll around in your weirdness, make a hat out of it and dance.
