OUR PROJECTS

Create runs its award-winning creative arts projects across the UK

Our passion for having a positive impact on the lives of society’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people is the driving force behind everything we do.

Our projects – all of which are run by professional artists – enable people who are excluded through disability, disadvantage, ill-health, imprisonment, poverty or social isolation to take part in high quality creative arts experiences.

In 2021/22 we ran 981 workshops, empowering more than 1,367 participants.

“Projects with Create are great because you’re learning and having fun but also being social. You’re seeing people who are in the same situation so you don’t feel alone, knowing there’s a support system out there if you need it.”

Pandemic response

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we rapidly developed a new digital delivery mechanism for our projects – Create Live! – which enabled us to continue reaching our participants when they needed us most. This speedy innovation was recognised with the Digital Transformation of the Year 2021 award from Charity Times.
