Art for Wellbeing week

27th April 2020

This new, free digital resource pack provides seven days of Art for Wellbeing activities with a new art based activity available to download every day from the cathedral’s website – including how to juggle!.

Circus skills and the art of mindful photography – Gloucester Cathedral launches its Art for Wellbeing week.

The Dean, the Very Revd Stephen Lake said:

“Our vision is to seek to be ‘in tune with heaven and in touch with daily life’. This is an inclusive aspiration that sets the glory of a particular place in God’s vision for human flourishing.

“At this unprecedented time when the Cathedral is closed, we must now, more than ever, find ways to continue enabling everyone to find wholeness and refreshment.”

Art for Wellbeing Week resources draw inspiration from the rich and varied history, art, architecture and musical traditions of Gloucester Cathedral and is available to all as part of a wider series of resources the Cathedral’s Community Engagement and Social Responsibility team has developed in response to the current Covid-19 pandemic.

The resources aim to ensure that people who usually attend the Cathedral’s Art for Wellbeing programme (run annually in partnership with Adult Education Gloucestershire) continue to be supported whilst the Cathedral building is closed.
