contemplative listening workshops

Our arts workshops have a wonderful potential to foster calm awareness and creativity through contemplative listening exercises and 'slow art' making. We offer one-off and short courses tailored to the needs of those we work with. We are also developing a 5-day course that acts as a mini-retreat for those that want to move deeper into mindful listening.

Making art brings people together in a relaxed and friendly environment, encouraging the exchange of ideas, stories and experiences, while promoting cooperation, friendship and feelings of belonging.

By sharing our experiences and creations we can inspire others, spark their interest, make them smile and foster understanding. Quietly connecting with others nurtures positive feelings of purpose and self-worth.


Keeping active

Soundwalks, field recording and other slow arts activities get us out and about, benefitting our health and wellbeing.



Sound arts practice develops a range of personal, creative and technical skills that boost self-confidence, raise self-esteem and foster a sense of purpose.
