How to Attend - Out of the Blue

COVID19 UPDATE: Our usual programme of Out of the Blue sessions is temporarily postponed. We have a new online creative offer that you can access from a laptop, smartphone or tablet. If you have any queries or concerns regarding this, please let us know in the “Any other information you think we should know?” section or contact us directly. We're also developing new ways that people can take part in Out of the Blue without internet access.

  • Complete beginners to experienced artists/creatives

  • 18+

  • Living in Kirklees

  • Experiencing issues with their mental health (a diagnosis not necessary)

  • Protecting or maintaining their wellbeing/mental health

There are also other online creative activities available for all to access with 'HOOT from home' - visit the Whats On page to find out more
