COVID -19 Service
For our service users and any new referrals, we have now moved to supporting people through weekly art/writing and dramatherapy video-link sessions, regular outings (when not in lockdown) and updates via text, email or phone. We are unable to use Craigentinny Community Centre and are abiding by Covid rulings. Please see the downloadable documents below for details. You will need a health or social care professional to fill in our referral form.
We also regularly update our Facebook page and this website with arts activities on our Art and Well-Being page, so check it regularly.
Alma Theatre is involved in a project with Active Inquiry, Bethany and Shakti, and meet on zoom and outdoors (when permitted). Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out about joining them.
Margaret, Evelyn and Elisa from The Alma Project
The Alma Project aims to improve the mental health and well-being of the inhabitants of Edinburgh and Lothians through the use of the arts as a therapeutic tool. We provide quality, arts groups to people with mental health issues. We are involved in many public exhibitions, performances and workshops that give mental well-being a platform, and help to educate about mental ill health.
The Alma Project was set up as a constituted community group by service users and their supporters on 5th December 2010 and became a Scottish Charity Incorporated Organisation on 12 Nov. 2015. SC046127
