We run a range of fun, inclusive creative learning programmes, from singing and signing choirs to specialist sensory activities for wellbeing, creative digital media and fabulously glittery arts and crafts.
In this section, you'll find information on all the projects we run, what they involve, who they're for and how you can join.
We offer a range of creative media activities, helping a wide range of people tell their stories through film, podcasts, animation, creative writing and photography. We work in a range of community settings, tailoring the activities to the needs of the group members.
Creative Sensory Activities
We’re experts in developing sensory-based creative activities, designed for people with profound and multiple learning difficulties. They support participants to develop communication, motor and learning skills and provide opportunities to socialise and have fun with friends.
Hands and Voices
Our inclusive singing and signing choir, set up in 1997 to help adults with communication and learning difficulties communicate through music and performance. The Hands & Voices programme includes weekly rehearsals during term-time and an apprentice training programme. We also put on regular performances across the city and deliver outreach workshops co-led by our Hands & Voices apprentices.
IMPs (Inclusive Music Projects)
Year-round fun, inclusive music activities for disabled and non-disabled children and young people. The IMPs programme includes after school clubs for under-11s, weekly sessions during term time for 11 - 25 year-olds, holiday activities, and an apprentice training programme. We also deliver outreach workshops in schools, youth groups and other community settings, co-led by our IMPs apprentices.
iMUSE provides a relaxing space for you to explore creatively. It uses relaxation, sound, and visuals to help reduce stress and anxiety, improve your mood and enhance communication. iMUSE has proven to be of benefit to young people and adults with complex needs, older people and people with mental health issues.
Since 2016 we’ve been working creatively with people going through a period of crisis, helping them tell their story and communicate what they’re going through.
