We want our staff, artists, community partners and participants to stay well and healthy.

Following advice from the government, and in order to play our part in stopping the spread of the virus, we have – in consultation with our community partners – postponed our projects until further notice. All staff are working from home.

As a charity that exists to bring vulnerable participants together to reduce isolation, enhance wellbeing and provide opportunities to experience the joy, stimulation and empowerment of creativity, it’s vital for us to continue with our crucial, impactful work. We believe that in difficult times, access to creativity is more important than ever. We are therefore delighted to launch Create Live!, a new strand of our work that is taking live, interactive, creative workshops direct to our participants in their homes via Zoom. Find out more in our CEO’s latest blog.

We urgently need your support to help us take our Create Live! workshops into the homes of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable children and adults. Please consider making a donation or joining our Create the Difference membership scheme from as little as £10 per month.

Our thoughts are with everyone who is being affected by this situation and we pass on our very best wishes to all of you and your loved ones.
