We organise regular free all day music workshops facilitated by well-known nationally-established musicians for local aspiring musicians, songwriters, and poets, to build creativity, confidence, and belief.
Participants create music, songs and spoken-word together and perform their original work at gigs later in the day.
When Tonic first formed, we started a twice-weekly art group for artists who were under the care of adult mental health services in Portsmouth. The work produced was exhibited in a central venue and featured in our Tonic programme. The artists felt the work they had produced had meaning, gave a sense of purpose and all were keen to continue the group, so we did!
