Hi, I’m Hayley and I am a student from Gosforth Academy and have completed a week long work placement here at Helix Arts. I have helped out in first week of the ‘Well Summer’ workshops as well as visiting the office and Re:Visits exhibition at Segedunum. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the passionate and dedicated Helix Arts team!
Throughout my time here at Helix Arts, it has been evident that the team are really passionate about the work that they are doing, helping children and communities through the use of art in order to improve overall well-being as well as enabling new friendships to grow. However, the quality of the artwork produced is not necessarily the main focus, but rather the experiences and skills that are gained by attending their projects and the positive impact that these new found or strengthened abilities can have after the workshop is over.
