While crafting might not cure stress or anxiety, it can certainly provide relief. It promotes social support and inclusion, as well as cognitive processes which helps with the upkeep of our mental health and wellbeing.
space+time has been largely inspired by movements such as The Men’s Shed; a nation-wide community-focused organisation providing support, social inclusion and resources to members, both technical and emotional. It has demonstrated that a safe, creative community space is educational and beneficial for mental and physical health and encourages social inclusion.
space+time promotes wellbeing and mental health by providing a space for creativity, learning, community, and mindfulness.
