Mindful Map is a multi-arts project in Chopwell Wood that seeks to help reduce the social isolation of young people aged 16-25.

The project is led by visual artist Tommy Anderson. Tommy’s practice combines typography, aerosol art, illustration, photography and collage.

Participants will work alongside Tommy to create an outdoor trail where visitors can pause, reflect and reconnect via a series of arts experiences that encourage interactions with nature. The group will be part of the process from initial idea and conception to trail launch and have the opportunity to develop new skills and friendships while participating in high quality arts activities.

Sessions take place on Wednesday evenings (6-8pm) and Saturday mornings (10am-12pm) in Chopwell Wood from 6th October onwards.

Get involved!
