This workshop is part of Taking pART – a new Arts & Health partnership project by artsNK and Transported which will be delivered as a taster programme of free integrated visual arts activities in the libraries of Boston and Spalding. The activities are funded by the Mental Health Promotion Fund through the Managed Care Network and Transported and are accessible to all members of the community with a special emphasis to integrate those experiencing mild to moderate mental health issues. The activities are designed to develop new skills, build lasting relationships and encourage mutual support in a welcoming and inclusive environment.


Transported is a strategic, community-focused programme which aims to get more people in Boston Borough and South Holland enjoying and participating in arts activities.  The programme is overseen by the Centre of Culture and Creativity at the University of Lincoln, and is funded by the Creative People and Places fund from Arts Council England.
