The Alma Project aims to improve the mental health and well-being of the inhabitants of the 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

Upcoming Groups

Alma Theatre Company – Home Project

Held at McLaren Halls, 48 Restalrig Road South, EH7 6L

We are looking for people to join our exciting new theatre project.  We are an inclusive group of adults who use theatre to explore discrimination and injustice.  In our new project we are exploring the theme of home and will be working towards creating a new piece of theatre to perform at The Just Festival in August, and other settings in the Autumn.
