Improving mental and physical wellbeing in schools through interactive art.
The school playground serves as one of the most important developmental spaces for young minds and bodies. According to the Mental Health Foundation, mental health problems affect about one in 10 children and young people. In 2018, over one in five children in the first year of primary school were overweight or obese.
Art4Space have been improving mental wellbeing through the arts for 20 years. Now we are using our expertise to get kids actively thinking about healthy eating, doing physical and mental exercises, using mindfulness techniques and engaging with nature.
We’ve developed a vibrant, interactive version of the playground trim trail that encourages both physical and mental wellbeing through exercise games, sound and breathwork meditations and brainteasers.
