WORKSHOPS FOR WELLBEING – Using the Arts as a tool to engage and stimulate those living in care; improving their HEALTH & WELLBEING.

Independent Arts is a small charity based on the Isle of Wight founded in 1987. We use the arts as a tool to improve health, wellbeing and quality of life for older people, and others in our community facing disadvantage or social isolation.

We have 30 years’ experience of delivering a wide range of arts activities in residential care homes known as ‘Workshops for Wellbeing’, these include Art, Craft & Photography, iPads, Chair Based Movement, Creative Writing, Reminiscence and One to One sessions.

This site showcases and celebrates the invaluable work produced through our workshops and partnerships with schools and other community groups.
