creative workshops

In 2020 we’re continuing to bring a positive impact to people through sharing opportunities to enjoy the benefits of being creative.

If you’d like to join us, take a look at our new volunteering opportunity in Lowestoft, and keep an eye out for further information about how you could get involved in not one, but three creative festivals celebrating the power of the arts in May this year.

We look forward to working with you all to bring confidence, joy and new connections through the arts this year!

Best wishes,

Alex & Hayley, Co-Directors

A message from our friends

Creative Arts East are on the look-out for artists and creative practitioners to work with on their award-winning health & wellbeing programme for older people, Our Day Out.

This fortnightly programme provides high quality music and movement-based activities to older people.

Are you interested in leading a series of workshops in Norfolk? The Our Day Out workshops focus around music and/or movement, but they are also looking at introducing new art forms.
