About Creative Arts

C&C’s unique Creative Arts service started over 30 years ago. A part time Arts post was established and regular activities were introduced into our different housing schemes and care homes. 

As research demonstrates, participation in the arts:

  •    Promotes inclusion and reduces social isolation 
  •    Advocates lifelong learning
  •    Encourages individuality and personal expression
  •    Gives access to new places and experiences 
  •    Builds communities and neighbourhoods


In the Age UK Wellbeing Index 2017: Creative and Cultural Participation ranked number one for contributing to wellbeing in later life. 

Projects, outings, and activities take place in the majority of C&C’s communities. We have also collaborated with many well-known arts organisations including Royal Opera House, Green Candle Dance, Magic Me and the Royal Albert Hall. 



Our Creative Arts programme has won several industry and funding awards. These include:
