Our Artists

Create’s programmes are delivered by exceptional artists who share our commitment to empowering lives. All our artists are freelance professional practitioners in their specialist field who combine a passion for their artform with a love of people. They have exceptional communication skills combined with extensive experience of leading creative arts projects in education and community settings. They act as facilitators, encouraging and motivating workshop participants to explore their creativity, develop existing and new life skills, become more self-confident and have fun. All participants’ contributions are encouraged and valued. Artists are able to expand their own artistic horizons, exploring new ideas and developing ambitious programmes that benefit both Create’s participants and their own artistic practice. They are engaged in a wide range of imaginatively-conceived programmes that place participants’ ideas and the development of their creativity at the heart of every project.

Each artist receives a bursary and commits to around 25 days across the year.
