Well done Wellbeing Event!

Visitors to Saturday’s Wellbeing event in the Kirk centre were all very impressed by our display. There was a lovely, lively buzz with lots of information and people to chat with and exchange ideas.

Our display included comments that group members had contributed when asked for their reasons for joining EDAG. Here they are, a wide spectrum of ideas of what the group means for us:

Meet others and socialise,

Gain confidence in our own ability,

Enjoy the informality of the group,

Reconnect with our past skills and experiment with new mediums.

Escape from everyday worries.

Help others by being encouraging.

Something I always wanted to do but never thought I could until I joined.

Appreciate the diversity of artistic talent.

A way of turning my negatives into positives.


Share our work with the wider community.

Good for mental health and wellbeing.

Very relaxing and therapeutic.

Share ideas and learn from others.

Develop artistic skills.

Enjoy the informality of the group.
