We believe that everyone can learn, everyone can be creative and everyone can make a contribution to their local community.

We’ve been running arts and creative media learning projects in and around York since 1982.

A lot of people take part in our projects. From disabled young people and adults, to older people in residential care and people with mental health problems. We help them develop the skills and confidence to connect with their local community and have more of a say in the things that matter to them.

And we make sure everyone has a lot of fun along the way!
