Background Information:
Nine thousand people in New Zealand are affected by strokes each year, with many losing cognitive and/or physical ability, loss or confusion of speech. This affects different aspects of life – changing roles and relationships, financial situations and can lead to anxiety, depression, lethargy and loss of a sense of identity. The impact on individuals and families can be devastating. Furthermore, current health rehabilitation only focuses on physical aspects.

Māpura Studios is an inclusive creative space in Fowlds Park, St Lukes, offering an innovative and unique programme of visual art therapy for people who have experienced a stroke. Skilled art therapists and fine art tutors engage participants in the artmaking process to give expression to the complex range of physical, emotional and mental experience a person has as a result of the trauma of stroke – toward regaining a sense of purpose and self-worth, developing skills, self-expression and well-being. Participants report a decrease in anxiety and depression and increased optimism and desire to re-engage with life.

Māpura Studios receives no government funding. It is only through fundraising that these and other art programmes for people with diverse and often complex disabilities can be delivered.
