You are more likely to keep active if you are having fun and have friends to enjoy yourself with.
We all know how important it is to have active interests, to be able to take part in these alongside your friends, always having fun and learning along the way.
We are very proud of the variety of workshops and activities we are providing in our community and in our growing Friendship Group.
Please follow the links below to find out what you would like to do.
Friendships are a vital and enriching part of life. They have a huge impact on our mental health and happiness. They provide us with comfort and joy and boost our self-esteem. Having friends prevents loneliness and feelings of isolation.
The Friendship Group provides a safe environment to meet new people, try new things and build your confidence.
Our Friendship Group is kindly supported by the Friarsgate Trust, Brighton & Hove City Council’s Learning Disability Development Fund, the Shanly Foundation, Munro Charitable Trust and Brighton, Hove & District Mencap.
We have also been able to expand the group online thanks to funding from the Government’s Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by the National Lottery Community Fund. Thanks to the Government for making this possible.
We are closing the Art Studio space at The Open Market, our physical art space. Instead we are moving to an online virtual trading space that will support a wide range of artists and provide employment opportunities for the art community we support.
We will be announcing our new online platform supporting marginalised artists in May 2023 in conjunction with the Artists Open House festival.
In the meantime, take a look at some of the Grace Eyre Art Collective’s recent work:
