Fall into Autumn with Helium’s Community Workshops in Cork City

We at Helium are delighted to be launching a new series of creative arts workshops in Cork City for children and young people with long term illnesses. Starting this autumn, over the course of several workshops, participants will work with Helium’s Creative Health Hub artist in Cork, Siobhán Clancy. They will take part in creative activities that are based on the participants’ own unique interests and ideas, in a fun and relaxing environment.

  • Workshops are free.
  • Medical cover will be provided by a trained professional.
  • The venue is wheelchair accessible.
  • Come prepared to get creative… Wear old clothes or bring an apron!
