Thursday Corona Day 67 - helping people to connect
Remaining physically distanced but socially connected is how we need to lead our lives for some time to come.
Mindy Chillery's Crowdfunder http://bit.ly/2WX0Ceu will make sure that people with mental ill health and those who need to continue self-isolating are not left disconnected because they don’t have the skills or means to get online. The money raised in this campaign will be used directly by Arty-Folks to purchase hardware and provide individual support to enable at least 25 additional people over the next 6 months to access our on-line courses and join a creative community of peers.
Looking forward to tomorrow to see our members work for project no.9.
For part one, we asked them to step back from their fears, from ruminating and problem-solving and to write a list
A list that starts with: “I am happy when…”
No, this is NOT your usual gratitude exercise.
We have asked our members to take ownership of their happiness, to become aware of the numerous little situations when they feel happy, and to fully enjoy those moments.
Lorella: "I am happy when...
...I prepare my strong Italian coffee first thing in the morning, sipping it while watching shenanigans in my garden.
...I am cuddled up on my comfy settee with our old cat
...my son and I have TV dinners
...I am putting the world to right with people I love
...sitting in front of the fire
Tuesday Corona Day 65 - please support Mindy's Crowdfunder for Arty-Folks
Mindy Chillery, Executive Director @CovArtspace will shave her beautiful golden locks to fundraise for Arty-Folks:
"I have experienced mental ill health and I know many, many others who have too. Everyone needs support to find their way through those difficult times and each person's journey will be different."
Like many other organisations Arty-Folks had to move face-to-face work online and we are now running our free course ‘The Fine Art to Wellbeing’ monthly using Zoom.
We take it for granted that everyone has at least a smartphone and internet access but in fact 60% of the people who did register for the course in May did not have the skills and confidence to use video conferencing. 30% did not have smartphones, or are on pay-as-you-go so cannot afford to live stream.
Mindy aims to raise £1,500 to help us provide digital access to our most vulnerable and socially isolated members.
Thank you for your donation, for sharing with your friends, for following and helping us raise awareness.
