TLC's Art Project is a community based open studio for people experiencing any form of mental health problems and emotional distress - including just having a bad day!


We are part of TLC Art and Drop-in Projects.

Breathing Spaces is the second phase of our Mapping Manchester's Quiet Spaces aimed to promote positive mental health. We believe mental health is on a continuum and affects everyone - just like physical health! 

Through a series of art interventions and explorations led by Rae Story we will get out and about in nature, learning new skills in looking, listening and recording (drawing/digital) then sharing and reflecting on our experiences. These explorations will search out Manchester's 'breathing spaces'.

Keep checking the 'What's On' section of the site to follow our developments and see what activities are scheduled.


Please get in touch via the contact page if you would like to get involved in any way.
