Sparking Creativity, Igniting Change
We are the UK’s leading charity empowering lives, reducing isolation and enhancing wellbeing through the creative arts.
Our professional artists run creative arts projects with children and adults facing challenges in their lives. They are given a chance to express themselves, build skills, meet other people and nurture their wellbeing through animation, dance, drama, music, painting, photography and a host of other artforms.
We know that unleashing creativity ignites imaginations, develops confidence and builds relationships. We believe that everyone – regardless of circumstances, behaviour, age, gender, race or disability – should have access to the power of creativity.
