Support Double Elephant
Double Elephant Print Workshop is raising money for its award winning project for adults with mental health challenges, Print on Prescription.
We know from over 15 years’ experience that printmaking is a powerful tool for well-being and for unlocking all the wonderful things that creativity can inspire in a person, such as:
aiding thinking and problem solving
relieving stress and anxiety
connecting with others
fun and a sense of purpose
This Autumn we have been given the amazing opportunity to raise funds for Print on Prescription and have those funds matched pound for pound!
Arts in Health South West is an organisation which supports and encourages partnerships between arts and health organisations. Their new Catalyst fund will match any funding Double Elephant can achieve up to our target of £2000. Double Elephant has been chosen for Catalyst match funding due to the strength of our track record in this work, and the belief that these funds can make a real difference in our hands.
We know that the power of printmaking has helped dozens of people with their recovery over the past few years. But funding for this work is increasingly difficult to come by. We have already reached nearly half of our target, can you help us reach the magic £4000?
Please consider making a regular monthly donation or a one-off amount via Paypal to help us keep this work happening where it is needed most.
We also work in schools, community centres, hospitals, prisons and with all ages from pre-school children upwards. We regularly work with older people with dementia. We see the benefits of printmaking daily in encouraging decision making, experimentation and promoting a sense of achievement and self-esteem.
