Community Programme

Our Community Programme is just one of the ways in which we can support everyone's creative journey.

Leading a creative life has tremendously positive benefits.

Whether it’s learning a completely new technique, working on personal art projects, or just talking about art in a friendly and supportive environment, the positive impact of what we offer our participants is palpable.


My concentration and motor skills have improved. I am more willing to try new experiences. Being part of the programme is like going home, I feel I belong.

Community Programme participant


Our Community Programme provides nearly 200 participants with disabilities, health issues and those who are isolated with meaningful and long-term opportunities to increase their confidence and improve their health through their interest in art. We aim to create a thoroughly supportive and welcoming environment to ensure everyone feels comfortable to express creativity in whatever way they like.

If you, a friend or family member is interested in joining the Community Programme, please get in touch via



There is a real community spirit, where people know you and look out for each other.
