Coffee, Cake and Culture

Making culture accessible for anyone living with a physical or mental health need, and their families. Making art enables people to express themselves, be creative and provides opportunity to form new identities whilst celebrating uniqueness. We offer free gallery visits fully supported by artists, curators and volunteers. Coffee, Cake and Culture allows participants to share their experiences and memories through meaningful and stimulating activity. 

We would like to invite participants to our session and their family members to join our 2pm tour of the gallery as a respite opportunity.
