What We Do
We understand that creativity helps people live well. It allows us to contribute, make connections and look after our culture. We enable communities to access quality arts and making activities, which we recognise and protect as human rights.
We are an experienced creative consultancy for the care, housing, education and voluntary sectors. We help groups setup flexible activity spaces with adaptable tools and good value arts and making materials. My work was shortlisted for the Arts Health South West Prize in 2016 and in 2018 we received a Transform Ageing award.
