Art of Wellbeing

Art work that is focused on particular health agendas

Since its foundation in 1996, Masquerade’s aim has been to integrate people of all abilities within an arts environment using drama, dance, music and art.

Workshops usually run from April – December at the Youth & Community Centre from 6.30 – 8.45pm.

To find out this years dates please visit our What’s On page.

Please get in touch if you are interested in attending.

Our inclusive approach creates a space where participants of all ages and abilities are valued within a supportive community. We believe that the creative arts can help build confidence and can create ways to express and understand thoughts and feelings.
