Creative Lives On Air are delighted to be working in partnership with BBC Radio Suffolk and BBC Radio Norfolk. Rosa Torr has joined us to support community engagement shining a light on grassroot creative activity across the region. 

Caring for your mental health and wellbeing through creativity

Rosa's first piece for Creative Lives On Air on BBC Radio Norfolk focused on the 2021 World Mental Health Day. She talked to some of the people involved in Art at Worka not for profit Community Interest Company who offer arts activities as a means of promoting wellbeing. They encourage participants to rediscover their creativity, in a fun and collaborative way, thus increasing good mental health.
