In partnership with the South Western Railway Station Adoption programme, we have installed a series of posters at Woking Station, highlighting our philosophy that art has the power to make you feel good.

Research by the Arts Council has found that making and experiencing arts and culture transforms quality of life for individuals and communities. This new poster campaign promotes this positive effect on wellbeing and encourages people to think about what positively impacts their state of mind whilst travelling.

Projects such as these are invaluable in helping to spread our 'feel good' message and to emphasise our overarching social purpose – to improve the quality of life of our community.

Art and Wellbeing at The Lightbox

The Lightbox has a diverse cultural programme, including exhibitions, local heritage displays, talks and tours, social events and arts and crafts workshops, all of which contribute towards raising funds to support the charity’s community initiative, the Art and Wellbeing programme.

This programme provides opportunities for those that would otherwise not be able to access and enjoy arts and heritage services to take part in creative and therapeutic workshops. The programme includes community workshops for those living with dementia and their carers, those affected by mental health issues, those in local care homes and hospices and clients of the nearby York Road Project homeless shelter.
