Quiet Community Connections

Quiet Community Connections

We're bringing like-minded people together in a space where it's ok to talk and it's ok to be quiet too. 

Using a mix of creative activities, tea and space, this is your time for gently connecting with people who have similar stories with no pressure to talk in a group, share anything about yourself or even take part (you can bring a book to read with a cuppa if you like!)

We're creating a community of understanding where you can make friends, practice your social abilities, and take time out for self-care.

It's all about gently connecting:

Connecting with yourself through creating; embracing who you are and knowing you are good enough; increasing self-acceptance and self-kindness to live authentically and confidently as an imperfect person. 

Connecting with others through sharing compassion, empathy and understanding; knowing you are not alone, and that feelings of difficulty, doubt, pain and anxiety are just as universally human as feelings of joy, happiness, love and contentment.

We're proud to be a partner in the community project We Are Enough; The Creative Yarn Bomb of Love, embracing imperfect creativity and self-expression within Quiet Community Connections to spread the message that "we are enough, just as we are".
Knitting, crocheting, writing, poetry, personal stories, paintings and drawings created at the Community Connections groups will contribute to The Creative Yarn Bomb of Love that will be on display during Mental Health Awareness Week 2019.

You can help us to bring Quiet Community Connections to you...

We're partnering with the 'We Are Enough' project on to create Quiet Community Connections across Cornwall. We aim to run groups in a minimum of six areas this year, with each incorporating 'We Are Enough' creative activities to contribute to The Creative Yarn Bomb of Love that will be displayed in May 2019. 

Redruth and St Austell are on our radar, and the other locations are up to you! 

Please support the We Are Enough Crowdfunding campaign to make this dream a reality and bring Quiet Community Connections to you!

Quiet Gatherings

Quiet social gatherings, where it's ok to talk and it's ok to be quiet.

Please email hayley@quietconnections.co.uk to let us know you're joining in (please note: you may also need to book a ticket via the link).

Creativity reduces stress and improves mental health and confidence. It's also a great way to practise making 'mistakes' and being imperfect; accepting ourselves as we are and treating ourselves with the loving-kindness we deserve.
