The Recovery Foundation ran the Erdington Creative Arts Programme from March to August 2022 for adults recovering from mental health illnesses.

Eight six-week workshops took place during this period and culminated in the Erdington Art Showcase Event on 8 August.

Over 50 people have attended the workshops where participants have got involved with art journaling, mixed media and printing and art in parks.

Local artist Angela Chapman and a cohort of volunteers designed and delivered the programme.
