About

Inclusion Arts operates as a Constituted Management Committee that implements intergenerational art projects with community engagement. The majority of the projects are workshop led with creative activities, often collaborating with health professionals and and other professionals, raising awareness around Health and Wellbeing.

 

Inclusion Arts first official project was Creativity in Wellbeing in 2015/16. There was a collaboration with key stakeholder in the Loughborough Junction area of Lambeth, which has officially been recognised as having some of the most deprived areas in London.

 

To encourage lifestyle changes in an area of severe deprivation was a challenge and a thrust of the project. Poverty can be linked with various health issues such as obesity, that can be a direct outcome of food poverty.  Engaging with participants in a creative way with contributions of a qualified Nutritionist and Gardeners (Community Food Growers) was how the project set about tackling these concerns collectively demonstrating how lifestyle changes can help contribute to their Health and overall Wellbeing. Designs from the creative workshops were reproduced onto printed recipe cards, with the recipes drawn up by the qualified Nutritionist.
 

Jason Gibilaro who has a background in managing highly successful Award Winning Public Art Projects with community engagement  has project managed the majority of the projects to date. He was also Inclusion Arts Open Project Night Ambassador for Open Project Night held at Impact Hub Brixton 16/18.
