The benefits of music on our mental health and well-being are well-evidenced. Multiple studies suggest that making music in a group can lower stress levels, boost confidence and self-esteem, and create a sense of community and shared identity. Our professional artists and musicians are there to support you and be guided by what you want to do – whether that’s crafting poetry or writing a rock song, Creative Directions Sounds is for anyone and everyone.

When and where?

Edlington Helping Hands Centre (Hilltop), DN12 1PL
Tuesdays, 1-3pm

No booking required – free to attend.
Contact or 01302 493991 if you have any questions at all.

It’s incredible that I can come to this session without any musical skill and create something so beautiful.

Creative Directions is designed to be flexible, so just come along when you can. Just because you’re working with professional artists it doesn’t mean you need any experience with the arts. Everyone is creative and capable of expressing themselves in their own way, and help and support will always be available when you want it. Before you know it you’ll unlock creative skills and become more confident in using them in your everyday life in positive ways.
