One of our main priorities is working in the community; teaching, supporting and increasing social cohesion.
Our overall objective with everyone that we come into contact with is to build up their confidence and self-esteem through arts and crafts and return them to the community or to reduce the need for prescribed medication.
The Artrium strives to ensure the whole community gets involved in one way or another Working in schools with younger people is fantastic using arts and crafts into a learning environment, showing the importance of encouraging creativity for mental health well-being.
Over the years we have completed outreach at several schools, community centres and retirement homes in Hartlepool but we are able to work in the whole of the North East region.

FEEDBACK FROM OUTREACH
Julie Fletcher, Community Manager of St Hild’s School, Hartlepool
“Artists and volunteers from Artrium have introduced a diverse and creative range of arts and crafts workshops which have proved hugely popular as an after school activity and as part of our family learning programme. They visit us every summer holiday for 6 – 8 weeks and offer sessions twice a week that not only engage the children but also educate and delight them.”
Neil Nottingham, Headmaster of Stranton Primary School, Hartlepool
“I would just like to say thank you for the fantastic workshops that colleagues from Artrium put on in Stranton Primary School earlier this year”
