Creative Beings wellbeing garden studio space

Creative Beings CIC is a Community Interest Company, set up as a social enterprise so that profits are used to benefit our wider community.  All courses and events are designed to promote wellbeing.  Sometimes this might be about facilitating a safe space to speak freely.  At other times it might be about encouraging people to have a go at making marks on pieces of paper (some people call this drawing or painting!)  Have a look at our courses & events page.

Some of our courses and events are priced to make a surplus that can then be used by Creative Beings CIC to subsidise places for others who would not normally be able to attend.  This financial support can be used to help cover travel expenses to attend sessions, to cover specialist tutor fees and to purchase materials.

2020 was a strange year due to Covid-enforced lockdown. Initially, we postponed many events and reduced numbers due to social-distancing. We also experimented with some courses online.  Over the year, we ran events that benefited 443 attendees (vs 747 in 2019) and supported 3 charities.  You can read more in our 4-page 2020 social impact report.

Early in 2020, we used some of our surplus to run 5 Creative Wellbeing Workshops with clients of charity Headway Devon.  This wonderful two-way learning experience added fun and personal development to all involved.  You can see highlights here.
