Taking part in activities and being part of a supportive group can have a positive impact on your quality of life and community. Govanhill Baths Wellbeing, Arts and Health programme supports and provides opportunities for adults within the Govanhill community to come together and participate in a range of groups and activities to improve their health and wellbeing.
Delivered by and built around the needs of our community, the Wellbeing, Arts and Health programme can provide a safe and supportive space to learn together, be creative and try something new. Whether you’re looking to be more active, meet new people, try something relaxing or increase your self confidence we hope to have something for everyone to take part in.
Run by a dedicated and passionate team of staff and volunteers our activities and classes are for people living within a mile of Govanhill who are not currently working, receiving benefits and not in education.
Inline with NHS and Government guidelines, Govanhill Baths’ Arts, Health and Wellbeing classes are currently being delivered online or socially distanced. Please read our Participant Agreement before taking part in any in person activity.
‘Art helps us access and express parts of ourselves that are often unavailable to other forms of human interaction. It flies below the radar, delivering nourishment for our soul and returning with stories from the unconscious. A world without art is an inhuman world. Making and consuming art lifts our spirits and keeps us sane. Art, like science and religion, helps us make meaning from our lives, and to make meaning is to make us feel better.’ Grayson Perry, Artist
