The Harris in the Community

Creative programmes to promote mental well-being, bringing art to a wide range of community groups in the Preston area. Working with our partners in the local community, we encourage individuals and groups that need extra support to work with us. This work is targeted specifically at young people; vulnerable adults; minority groups and older people (through our Reminiscence programme) and services are provided either at the Harris or off-site in the heart of the community.

We offer a wide range of activities from one-off talks, tours and consultations, to long-term weekly or monthly projects. All our activities are inspired by our collections and exhibitions and aim to improve social and life skills as well as improving health and well-being.

If you would like an informal chat about how the Harris could help your group call our Learning and Access team on 01772 905412.
