Helium Arts – Making Social Connections Through Creativity

Do you know a young person living with a lifelong health condition who could benefit from making social connections through creativity?

Helium Arts is a children’s charity committed to improving the well-being of children and young people in Ireland, aged 6-16, who are living with lifelong physical health conditions.

We offer free creative workshops, both in communities and online, led by professional artists. These workshops provide safe and accessible spaces where children navigating health conditions can come together.
We use creativity to inspire these children to feel more confident.  By empowering them with tools such as friendship, community and new skills, Helium Arts helps these children to become more prepared and capable of overcoming adversity.

Supported conditions include diabetes, epilepsy, cystic fibrosis, cerebral palsy, allergies, heart conditions, asthma, spina bifida, juvenile arthritis, rare or complex conditions and many more. According to a recent independent evaluation of our community programme,

“100% of parents reported that their child experienced an improved quality of life after participating in Helium Arts workshops.”

This is a testament to the positive impact of our work on the lives of these young individuals and their families.

Registrations are now OPEN for our FREE Summer Camps in Dublin and online.

We would appreciate it if you could help spread the word among your networks.
