Lose yourself in one of our regular creative activities

From photography to drawing, creative writing and printmaking, each activity invites you to explore and enjoy different aspects of your surroundings.
Our team of artists has produced a programme of different activities, and we’ll be posting a new one every 2 – 3 weeks.


When you have completed an activity, it would really help us if you would complete a very short survey; it will only take a couple of minutes and it will help us assess the impact the project is having. Click here to take the survey.
