’Creative project work like ours changes not just the lives of the individuals involved it changes the lives of their families and the communities around them.
It has this kind of effect because our work is about giving all participants access to beauty, to sensitivity, to creativity… life chances and new experiences don’t have to end just because you get old! ‘
