Healthy Minds Apprentices create a new "Calm" exhibition at Cartwright Hall


A new exhibition at Cartwright Hall in Bradford is using the power of nature to help people relax and de-stress. The exhibition, called "Calm", was created by a group of young people from the Healthy Minds Apprenticeship program, in partnership with Bradford Museums and Galleries and Allstar.




The apprentices were tasked with creating a relaxing and safe space using paintings from Bradford's public art collection. They decided to focus on the theme of nature, as they knew that spending time in nature can have a positive impact on mental health.



There is a growing body of research that suggests that spending time in nature can have a positive impact on mental health. Studies have shown that nature can help to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also improve mood, boost self-esteem, and increase feelings of well-being.



There are a few reasons why nature is so good for mental health. First, nature provides a sense of peace and tranquility. When we are surrounded by nature, our minds are less likely to wander and we are more likely to relax and de-stress.


Second, nature can help us to connect with our surroundings and feel more grounded. When we spend time in nature, we are more likely to appreciate the beauty of the world around us and feel more connected to the natural world.


Third, nature can provide us with a sense of awe and wonder. When we experience something beautiful or awe-inspiring in nature, it can help to shift our perspective and make us feel more grateful for the good things in our lives.




The "Calm" exhibition has been created in partnership with Bradford Museums and Galleries, Healthy Minds and other partners. The exhibition is open to the public and can viewed at Cartwright Hall.
