Radiate Arts C.I.C. is a not-for-profit company working with local community groups, schools and the elderly. Our vision is to link with groups who would not usually experience art as part of their everyday life, to deliver a resource which they can use as therapy, relaxation, expression and a point of interest.
Creative play, concentration, observation and translation skills, communication and problem solving are key factors to our art clubs. Children can be inspired, creative and messy too!
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: email@example.com
All our staff have current enhanced DBS checks, child safeguarding certificates, and there will always be a qualified first aider on site.
We also provide art, social and therapy classes for elderly artists. Working with those experiencing varying stages of dementia, using art and craft as a medium to aid memory, keep the mind active and express thoughts and emotions. We also aim to provide an accessable resource to isolated individuals who cannot get involved with local art classes due to many reasons, whether they are physical or personal.
Our aim is to tackle isolation and establish connections within communities, creating a sense of well-being, companionship and involvement.
