CAST is one of the community enterprises supported by Sheffield Flourish.
CAST run mental health friendly and fun weekly art and writing groups, and monthly open mic sessions.
We also run an annual exhibition of attendee’s artwork.
“I’m so proud to be part of this exhibition. I even told the taxi driver. I want to tell all my friends”
Mandy – CAST art group attendee
You can find out more about the locations and times on the Sheffield Mental Health Guide, but here’s the three main CAST activities:
- Art for Wellbeing: for anyone who likes to create art of all kinds. Beginners welcome!
Writing and storytelling: whether you write regularly or are completely new to writing, this is a friendly and silly group
- Artists Gathering Open Mic Sessions: at this monthly all abilities open mic session you’re welcome to just watch, or play a song or share a poem. Run in partnership with Open Door Music.
“It has helped me to get out of the house and meet people, to gain confidence and to keep writing, of the latter of which is quite important to me. Also they have nice biscuits!”
