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 creating a facilitated 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 the 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 for people to attend sessions, to cover specialist tutor fees and to purchase materials.
In 2019, we ran 18 events that benefitted 747 attendees (vs 328 in 2018) and supported 4 charities. If you're interested to read more about this, please download our 4-page 2019 social impact report.
In 2020, we used some of our surplus to run 5 Creative Wellbeing Workshops with clients of charity Headway Devon. This was a wonderful two-way learning experience that really added fun and personal development to all involved. You can see highlights here.
