Founded in 2008 NiArtFr3edom workshops are the brainchild of Nailah Daley-Allen. A creative idea that she had toyed with for several years she eventually decided to take the plunge and bring them to a reality.
The workshops initially started as a few after-school projects in North London then moved on to I.R.I.E , the City and then onto Hackney’s notable mental health charity M.I.N.D.
It was from her own personal experience along with working with the community projects and M.I.N.D that NiArtFr3edom was able to develop on its ideals, establish functional partnership’s and would grow to give people of the community the opportunity to explore and connect with themselves creatively. It is through this transition that NiArtFr3edom connected with its philosophy- Creative Healing. Nailah noted that creativity as a medium can be used as a universal language to help heal, communicate, showcase skills and express a vast sea of emotions that are often not addressed when dealing with our fragmented side of society. NiArtFr3edom aims to bridge that gap of communication and fill the void of how we can address and reach out to members of community who otherwise may not know to communicate effectively.
Workshops are tailored to individual one on one needs through to groups. Workshops vary from one day projects within schools to arts & crafts , festivals and weekly workshops.
