Our approach

We run workshops that are relaxing, creative, person-centred, therapeutic, inclusive, empowering and fun!

We believe that creativity has the potential to act as a positive agent for personal, social and cultural transformation. This has led us to develop a person-centred approach to creative practice which is based on the principles of empowerment and equality.

 

 

We have evidenced that arts participation has a powerful role to play in the promotion of positive mental health and wellbeing of participants, and in developing active citizenship and well connected vibrant communities.

“I’ve enjoyed it so much, it’s let me meet friends. It’s changed my life because when my husband was ill I didn’t meet company”

We strive to contribute to the body of evidence that recognises the value of arts participation as essential to healthy communities. We do this through reflective practice, continual documentation and evaluation. We share this learning with participants and agencies on a local and national level through training, partnership work and dissemination of project documentation.
