Exhibitions at Bellshill Cultural Centre

CultureNL Creative Writing Class Work
High Days and Holidays
May has traditionally been the month that heralds the start of the holiday season. The month itself, for many people, offers workers and families the opportunity to enjoy two long weekends of public holidays that encourage days out, short breaks or just simply getting out and about more locally. Holidays are to be anticipated, treasured and most of all enjoyed. CultureNL’s Creative Writing Groups have responded to the ‘High Days and Holidays’ theme with the work on display in this exhibition.


Exhibitions at Airdrie Community Health Centre

19 June – 11 September
Airdrie Integrated Addiction Service – Service User Football Group
A Service User Football Group was formed by Airdrie Integrated Addiction Service to take part in the annual Suicide Prevention Tournament and the invitation was then opened up to the Community Mental Health Team who also brought along patients who were interested in taking part. At first, the participants, many of whom have a long history of drug and alcohol addiction or chronic mental ill health, struggled physically due to a lack of regular exercise but have now become fitter, healthier and more positive about their future.
