Creative Future works with approximately 600 people per year
That’s over 4000 individuals since March 2007. We are a small charity with four part time staff who are always short of time and money!
We provide enormous and valued support to talented people who lack opportunities due to mental health issues, disability, identity or other social circumstance.
We’re a bridge from the margins to the mainstream. Through training, exhibitions and publications, socially excluded people learn to harness their creative talents. Encouraging artistic excellence and professionalism, participants gain confidence, skills and get their work ‘out there’.
We’re a charity that gets results. Participants get exhibited, published and earn income. Many go onto further education, volunteering or employment. Stereotypes of under-represented people’s potential are challenged. Participants redefine themselves as people with talent rather than people with problems.
