Inkwell Arts is the creative wellbeing service from Leeds Mind. Through the arts, we
support our community in discovering the link between creativity and wellbeing, helping
them to look after their mental health for the long term.

Inkwell offers a varied programme of low-cost and free arts and craft classes in
community venues across the city, from Meanwood, to Chapel Allerton, Woodhouse,
New Wortley, Harehills and more. We also receive funding from LYPFT which allows us to
provide workshops across the crisis pathway in hospital and residential settings.

“Inkwell has positively impacted my life as it’s a low pressure activity that I
can attend even when I’ve not been feeling well. When I’ve been in
hospital/crisis I’ve managed to return to Inkwell before my other activities,
because you don’t have to talk to people and you can focus on your activity
instead of what’s going on in your thoughts.”– Lisa

We are part of Arts Together because we believe we can all make a difference
through art, creating and sharing safe spaces to help improve mental health
across Leeds.
