About Us

Creativity Works delivers creative projects that make a real difference to people’s lives.

We work with people of all ages and all backgrounds who may need a little support and inspiration, from young carers, to women living with post-natal depression, and older people. Our central aim is to use the power of the creative process to make a real difference to people’s lives, to draw communities together and enable more people to access the arts.

What We Do

What We Do

Putting wellbeing at the heart of all we do, we work with professional artists and wellbeing specialists to run creative courses and activities aimed at those facing difficulties in their lives or simply in need of some inspiration.

From visual arts to journaling, singing, or speaking in public, our activities offer people a wonderful opportunity to have fun, grow their confidence and make new friends.

Our Impact

Our Impact

Over 1,400 people take part in our courses and activities every year, including those from some of the most disadvantaged areas of Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol and beyond.

Our participants progress on to new opportunities in the workplace or in volunteering in the wider community. Some return to college or higher education, realising new skills. Many progress along their recovery journey from mental health challenges. Many make culture and creativity a part of their lives, take time away from their worries, and re-discover how to laugh and have fun.
