True Colours

True Colours is a vibrant new partnership project that brings together WEA East Midlands, Bright Ideas Nottingham, Making Waves and BME Cancer Communities. It aims to develop a series of short courses on a variety of topics  that will help to improve the mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of those who attend.Working with local people, we will design and deliver a series of short courses and workshops targeted at people experiencing issues such as anxiety, mild depression, stress and problems sleeping. These will include topics such as Health & Wellbeing, Creative Arts, Heritage & Local History, Wellness Recovery Action Planning, Communication Skills, and other areas people suggest.

If you are interested in taking part in one of our courses, have an idea for another course, or would like more information on the project, please contact Matt at Bright Ideas Nottingham on matt@brightideasnottingham.co.uk

  1. Hello there

    Might you be interested in doing something around Domestic violence and abuse? I specialise in teaching this for the WEA.

    Also wondered about something around listening to inspiring music and ‘having a go’ at percussion etc With a view to expressing feelings and lifting spirits? I teach a music course at Antenna
