Inspiring and empowering people
through creativity to explore, develop and grow


The artists we work with are pioneering new ways of reaching out to, and working with, individuals and communities to empower them through creativity to change their lives and perspectives. To facilitate artists to do this ground breaking work, and continually innovate their practice, our co|Create programme provides structured support in the form of:

  • training courses for both new and emerging socially engaged artists
  • Creative Conversations bringing together leading thinkers and practitioners to reflect upon emerging issues and debates, and share ideas
  • creative networking events to share inspiration and provide peer support.

Events coming up include:
