CoolTan Arts is an award winning arts in mental health charity run by and for adults with mental distress.
We believe that mental wellbeing is enhanced by the power of creativity.
There’s something for everyone at CoolTan. We run a vibrant community arts centre in Walworth Road, Southwark, South London. We provide a friendly, safe and supportive space, offering creative workshops, self-advocacy, art projects, stigma-busting cultural walks, a public art gallery, and an inclusive volunteering and training programme.
In the last year we worked face-to-face with more than 2000 people from across London, enabling them to stay well and improve self-esteem.
Our mission is to empower people to express themselves creatively and reconnect with their aspirations. We aim to promote positive mental health/well being, bringing about a change in how participants perceive themselves, enabling people to gain greater focus and to re-establish their relationship with society.
Inspire, Imagine, Create!
