About Creativity Works

Creativity Works harnesses the power of creativity to make a real difference to the lives of people who have been experiencing wellbeing or mental health challenges and social isolation. Their projects are created in partnership with the people they work with, volunteers, artists and a wide range of organisations we work with  including Virgin Care, The Quartet Foundation, Bath Mind, Avon & Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership Trust, Bath Museums, Bath City College, BaNES Childrens Services to name a few.

During the 20+ years that Creative Links, creative wellbeing service has been running, it has supported people to explore their creativity in the community, at events and festivals, in museum-based settings and on-ward hospital sessions, creating further pathways to creative and cultural activities across Bath and North East Somerset.

After an extraordinary year projects and peer led groups have met on line, through social media and where possible face to face outdoors. Creativity Works have been inspired by the creative enthusiasm, ideas and talent that has continued to warm our hearts and souls and keep us connected through tough times.
