End of an era for Kentish Town art therapy project
A party and exhibition was held in Kentish Town to celebrate and commemorate the achievements of an art project which is closing after three years of helping people with health problems.
Creative Health Lab has been offering art classes, singing lessons, horticulture and film-making sessions at Kentish Town City Farm in Cressfield Close. The sessions are based around the belief that alternative therapies can help people to overcome illness and distress.
The party at the Map Cafe in Grafton Road on Saturday marked the end of the project, which has lost NHS funding, and will close at the end of the month.
Karen Cartwright, project co-ordinator, said: “Most people had extremely positive things to say about their experience with the project.
“But there was also sadness about losing the centre.
