Enabling homelessness services to develop and deliver creative activities

Get creative: arts for all is a national project which aims to increase homeless people’s participation in arts and cultural activities in England, as a sustainable route out of homelessness.

The project aims to build the capacity of homelessness agencies to run arts activities for their clients. This may mean supporting agencies to set up activities such as singing, painting, digital photography or creative writing as well as supporting homelessness agencies to build strong and lasting partnerships with artists and arts organisations.

Get Creative: arts for all has been funded by the Paul Hamyln Foundation and the Grants for the arts, Arts Council England. Homeless Link will be providing direct support to agencies nationally, which includes offering workshops in partnership with Streetwise Opera about how to successfully deliver arts activities.
