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

Our Artists

At Creativity Works we work alongside experienced, creative, responsive Artists who endeavour to ensure successful participant led activities.

The majority of our Artists are socially engaged practitioners. This means that they work with genuine depth and ‘an expanded repertoire’ – allowing participants to feel supported, factoring in time and space for personal and social reflection, development and growth.

We support and invest in our unique pool of talented Artists, specifically through our Co|Create development programme. We enjoy collaborating with them on many projects, but we cannot vouchsafe every external activity that they undertake.

As the demands of each project are different, we take time to ensure we match our Artists to projects according to their strengths and context requirements.

Below are our “Creative Core” of Artists who are available to work on your projects according to their specific talents and interests. This is in no way an exhaustive list of our Artists or their talents. So please feel free to approach us if you have a project requiring a specific creative genre / discipline.
