My Friendly Planet (MFP) focuses on creative social engagement, enquiry and user experience (UX) through innovative participatory art, Art4Art and Waste2Art initiatives within mainstream environments and non-traditional spaces.
Our approach explores various concepts and media, which elicits positive physical and emotional engagement impact, whilst raising awareness in promoting well being, positive mental health and environmental action.
My Friendly Planet artists’ expertise in participatory art and interdisciplinary practices within social and creative engagements provide exploratory creative practices. The project offers various abilities and sets of skills to realise maximum impact, whilst maintaining ethical integrity. We offer secure, achievable leadership and balance to the project’s dissemination whilst providing beneficial support, positive and reflective individual dynamism to groups, individuals and to each other.

I AM ME| The ICE Project | Year Two – with My Friendly Planet & Y Services LGBT Group
I AM ME: My Creative Journey gave Y Services LGBT+ youth group an opportunity to explore, express, experience and exchange ideas and concepts of identity relating to the LGBT+ community. Young people’s mental health and emotional well-being were threads that ran through the meaningful relationships between young people and the medium of art. The group have experimented with wire work, collage, soap making and bead work to create a unique final installation. The project helped young people with their emerging sexual identity and gender identity. I am me, I am you, I am him, I am her, I am us, I am they, I am them, I am: I am.
