Welcome to Inkwell

A safe creative art space in Leeds

Enriching lives through creativity and promoting positive mental health

Inkwell is a safe, creative and accessible space where passion and skills entwine, challenging the stigma of mental health and celebrating the diversity of its participants. It seeks to engage, stimulate and absorb all abilities through creative activity. Users develop life skills such as teamwork and problem solving leading to increased confidence and improved wellbeing.

We are a Leeds Mind Project, a national registered Charity supporting people experiencing mental health difficulties. Leeds Mind provides services throughout the Leeds area and believes that everyone can lead a full, active and rewarding life. We support people to discover their own resources to ‘recover’ and to live life independently with their mental health condition.
