Bijli Productions

Project status: On-going   Location: Scotland wide

Bijli Productions were awarded £54,810.00 in June 2021 to run their project for 15 months.

The We Make the Path project uses the creative arts to enhance people’s capacity to self manage long term conditions in both physical and mental health. Focusing on underrepresented diverse communities in Scotland, the project will deliver peer-led creative activities helping participants express themselves in new ways, improve wellbeing, increase optimism, and reduce isolation. Key features include trauma informed accessible drama workshops to build skills, confidence, self-expression and connection, rehearsal and production skills to deliver a community performance, training and mentoring towards a leadership role to run workshops, and wellbeing support during and beyond the pandemic.
