Exercise Referral - Arts

Printer-friendly page
In collaboration with the Exercise Referral Co-ordinator, the St Albans Arts Team worked with GP referral clients to encourage, develop and stimulate creativity in a variety of media, by offering free or low cost arts based workshops. This formed part of the Exercise Referral Scheme  which evolved over 4 years, and was a 12 – 24 week programme of physical activity to help improve a variety of medical conditions.  

Later introduced new workshops including PhotoFit, BikeFit and DrumFit where we recycled junk collected along the Alban Way, transforming it into clocks to create the ‘Time to Waste’ exhibitions in the Clock Tower, Trestle Arts Base and Courtyard Café.
