Mindful Project Aiming to Get Young People into the Arts

Pilot programme celebrating completion with film screening

One of the workshops run by the programme

April 18, 2024

A pilot programme which aims to get more young people involved in the arts is to celebrate its completion at the Ealing Project this Thursday (18 April).

Hammersmith Fulham Ealing Hounslow Mind (HFEH Mind) and Yorke Dance Project (YDP) were awarded funding by the Arts Council for ‘Mindful Project’ pilot programme.

Over the last year, the YDP ran a series of workshops entitled Mindful, in partnership with HFEH Mind. The project was co-created by HFEH Mind and YDP and was delivered in collaboration within 5 local schools including Chiswick High School, Lady Margaret, Fulham Cross, Phoenix Academy, and Hurlingham Academy.

HFEH Mind and YDP are hosting a private screening of the ‘Mindful Project’ documentary followed by an exclusive viewing of the film ‘Sea of Troubles’ at the cinema.

Taking the mental health journeys of Hamlet and Ophelia as its artistic focus, the workshop uses the characters to navigate conflicts and emotions which some young people may also be experiencing.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
