As an Arts-Health for Wellbeing specialist we work with local service providers and the general public, to encourage members of our community, of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, to participate in the arts, inside and outside; to gain confidence, reduce social isolation and to challenge social barriers through innovation and integration.


In late July 2019 we will be launching Creative Futures at Umbrella Arts. Creative Futures is a brand new modern facility in a location steeped in culture and history at Spinners Mill and next door to our new Community Arts Centre.

Creative Futures is for adults who have disabiltiies, autism, or other neuordiverse conditions, to support them to grow and be an active part of our local community. All learners and members will have the opportunity to gain qualifactions up to Level 3. Qualifactions will be a wide range including functional skills, independance skills, social skills, friendship skills, community arts, arts management, arts award, photography, printmaking, cultural hertiage, animations plus more. All paths ways are personalised for each learner/member.
