Creativity in Care

13 October 2016

“The project is a process rather than an endpoint. The way we structure it is about the process – people are properly supported to let their voices come out.”

This project came about because local people wanted to try different creative activities that would help them to make new friends.

From the start, members shaped the project’s direction.

They changed the project’s name, chose the programme of activities, and decided which pieces of creative work would be used for the showcase performances.

Because there was such a range of activities, everyone was able to find something that fit their skills and interests.

“The project is a process rather than an endpoint. The way we structure it is about the process – people are properly supported to let their voices come out.” - Project staff

Working together in the workshops broke down barriers and members have made new and lasting friendships that have continued beyond the end of the project.

By putting on a performance in multiple venues, members were also able to build new relationships within the wider community.
