Core Arts

Overview

Core Arts was set up in 1992 by an artist using vacant space in the old Hackney Hospital. His studio became a haven for artistic expression, as curious patients seeking refuge from the monotony of life on the psychiatric ward immersed themselves in a world of paint and colour. Core Arts is now well-known as an innovative leader in mental health creativity, cultural diversity and social enterprise. With no analytical or clinical agenda, our expansive programme and member led ethos focuses on what people can achieve, supporting them to increase their capacity for innovation and learning, problem solving, confidence and leadership skills. Run by professional artists, writers and musicians in their own right, some of whom have been through the psychiatric system themselves, creates a genuine, exciting atmosphere of mutual learning and shared experience.
