Using creativity to stimulate the mind

RMIS occasionally collaborates with members of our local community on creative projects. teaching us new skills and providing variety. This taps in to different areas of the brain, thereby boosting our mental and physical health.

We ran a 'Women's group' at the Shed during the Summer of 2022 to undertake an art project. The men also developed their artistic flair in a subsequent series of a art workshops which resulted in their 'New Ways to Look at Bikes' exhibition. This ran from Jan to March 2023 at Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery.
