Gratitude wall community art
The Gratitude wall is a community art project inspired by research from Coventry University and H4C that has shown that the expression of gratitude improves mental health, resilience, positive emotions and builds friendships. The Gratitude Wall is an activity on the HOPE Programme ©, our evidence-based, positive psychology course that educates, informs, inspires and supports people to take control of their health and wellbeing.
People say this about the Gratitude Wall: “I loved this part of the course. I particularly got a lot from having to appreciate what was happening in my life, however small it may have seemed.” “It was a great idea and had a positive effect on me. I now do this in my daily diary.”
Supported by funding from the Arts Council, built by FabLab Coventry and working in partnership with Culture Coventry, Heritage & Culture Warwickshire, our mobile Gratitude wall project now tours museums, galleries, festivals, schools and workplaces for communities to share what they are thankful for and learn about the benefits of practicing gratitude.
We believe that this project touches on the art’s and research’s role in society and contributes to meaningful links with our communities. Here is a story of the origins of our Gratitude Community Art project #gratitudewall
