City Arts Nottingham develops arts opportunities that bring people together, stimulate change and create stronger, healthier communities. We believe participation in the arts can enrich and transform people’s lives and have been pioneering this approach for over 30 years.

A registered charity, we work creatively and collaboratively with communities and particularly target resources towards vulnerable groups. Our projects include music, performance, visual and digital arts and are all facilitated by artists particularly skilled in working creatively with people.

We are currently fundraising for our Arts on Prescription programme. AOP is a programme for adults who may be experiencing mental distress or difficulties.  It expands the range of options available to patients and healthcare professionals, whilst complementing statutory healthcare. Itprovides a framework for alternative approaches to mental distress, reducing social exclusion, promoting health and well-being and addressing mental health issues.

AOP is an alternative to the usual therapies, such as counselling.  This prgramme needs YOUR support to continue.  As little as £3 will provide a place for a person for a one hour workshop.
