Releasing Potential 2022

Releasing Potential is a project designed to address the lack of confidence and reduced motivation that so often results from disability and economic and social isolation.

Working with professional artists at Headway Arts, learners will take part in a range of arts activities and discover new skills.

The course will start on Wednesday 27th April 2022 and run for 12 weeks each Wednesday 10am – 3pm.

To take part in this course you must be:
• Aged 19 or older
• Unemployed or economically inactive
• Committed to attend all 12 sessions
