GOING AHEAD - 1st Wellbeing Art Walk

After weeks of leadership training, route planning and risk assessments the 1st of our Wellbeing

Art Walks went ahead on Thursday, 31st August 2023.

Alex Burgess led the walk supported by Karen Brinton and the pair are asked walkers to meet together on the car park for Corngreaves Nature Reserve for the walk which sets off at 10:30am. Alex had asked walkers to, "Bring along your own sketchbook, camera and essential items such as water. The car park is FREE and there's no charge for taking part".

Alex and Karen plan to hold regular wellbeing art walks every month at either Corgreaves Nature Reserve or around the adjoining lands of Haden Hill Park.

Karen mentioned, "Our team of walkers from The Art Yard gallery are extremely grateful to Saba Yafai from Public Health Sandwell for helping to establish our wellbeing art walks as part of the Sandwell Stride programme under the umbrella of the Ramblers Association. Participants will be able to drop into the nearby gallery after the walk for a chat and a cup of coffee".

Midland Film and Art


Midland Film and Art is a membership club where people can enjoy screenings of films or view artwork and crafts that would otherwise not be shown in mainstream cinemas or exhibitions, or be available locally. These shows usually have an educational aim, introducing new audiences to different audiovisual works through screening and display, encouraging participation in arts and crafts. A common feature that may characterize a Midland Film and Art meeting is that they either begin with an introduction to the audience and/or end with the promotion of a discussion about the film/art, where assistants, organizers and sometimes the filmmakers/artists themselves, exchange their views.
