Create is delighted to announce that Anthropologie is sponsoring two artists on our Nurturing Talent programme this year.

The support is part of our ongoing partnership with Anthropologie, an international lifestyle brand that shares our vision of the hope and inspiration the creative arts bring to people’s lives.

Each year, our Nurturing Talent programme provides a platform for six emerging artists to gain invaluable hands-on workshop experience while applying their artistic practice in community settings. They receive training from our professional Create artists, enabling them to build the skills and experience to empower disadvantaged and vulnerable children and adults through the power of creativity.

At the culmination of the programme, both artists will co-lead a cross arts workshop, providing support and inspiration to a group of our participants. During the year, they will also participate in an exciting project in collaboration with Anthropologie.

In addition to their support for Nurturing Talent, till point donations in Anthropologie’s UK stores will run from 5 June until 7 August 2023, helping to raise funds for Create’s important work of bringing the benefits of creativity to more vulnerable people.

Create’s partnership with Anthropologie was launched in 2022 and has already been incredibly fruitful. The company funded inspiring creative arts projects with young and adult carers and older people in late 2022, supported Create during Giving Tuesday, and ran an in-store Christmas appeal throughout last December, all providing essential funds for our work.

Matt Hilgeman, Anthropologie’s Managing Director International, said: “Art and creativity are at the very core of the Anthropologie brand, so partnering and supporting a charity like Create really is the perfect fit for us. It’s a huge privilege to be working with such a worthwhile charity and I look forward to our journey together over the next year.”

We are immensely grateful for Anthropologie’s ongoing support and commitment to our work, and hugely excited about this next chapter of our partnership.
