Radiate Arts, a Community Interest Company, facilitates the expression of art within community groups, realising a positive impact on members of our community.
We employ our vision to engage with groups, listening to their needs, together we develop creative artistic ideas, and help them to participate in our projects which foster artistic, visual and non-verbal forms of expression.
Our experience shows, every time, the positive mental benefits of artistic expression in those that we work with.
Every day, together within our community groups we will all use our joint capabilities, our inspiration and our experiences to harness the power of artistic expression.
Radiate Arts are committed to deliver projects for those who would not usually experience art as part of their everyday life, providing a much-needed resource to integrate the benefit of the arts into our lives.
Our projects will be structured to nurture positive feelings of self-worth, mindfulness and awareness, enabling individuals to interact in a positive manner and create a cohesive sense of achievement and experiences of well-being.
Groups Within Society
We are committed to make a positive difference in society, we collaborate with range of groups within our communities, we promote celebration of diversity.
We have experience of delivering projects working with older people, homeless families, victims of domestic abuse, deaf children, neuro -diverse and -typical people, young carers, children, communities where there is evidence of isolation, and local authorities to celebrate the arts.
We are part of a local network of like-minded groups, all connected to organisations and charities that see the arts as an essential discipline in society. We enable the supply of art, mindfulness workshops, digital technology to support the arts.
As a CIC we secure funding from corporate and private sources, local authorities, local and national charities and organisations for our projects.
We are constantly working to raise funds for subsidised places on our workshops and courses that provide personal inclusion, artistic and verbal expression, leading to friendship and continued social contact. These are available to those who would not usually consider participating and aim to provide workable solutions for dealing with social isolation and exclusion. If you would like to donate a funded place for a child or young adult, please contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
All our staff have current enhanced DBS checks, child safeguarding certificates, and there will always be a qualified first aider on site.
