Creativity is thinking of new ways to do things! It involves producing ideas or behaviours that are original. Therefore there are two essential components to creativity -originality and adaptiveness. A creative individual generate ideas or behaviours that are novel or unusual and these make a positive contribution to the individuals' life or the life of others.

Creative thinking is an act of making a random combination of associations that lead to breakthroughs and new discoveries, that add value to people's lives. It is a performance of an individual's attitude, knowledge, imagination and ability to evaluate interesting ideas and experiences.

The main aim of workshops is to stimulate each participants' creative flair by opening up new opportunities to gain a broader understanding of their full potentials as visual learners, giving them a chance of using different innovative techniques.

Engagement, Diversity & Inclusion

Facilitating community art workshops that allow art activities to help participants open up and talk while working and enable them to express themselves visually. Engaging in meaningful activities contributes to community participation for the members of the mental health community in Tower Hamlets; this means to connect with others and break down isolation and loneliness. To help participants become more insightful about their unhelpful habits to understand better making healthy choices. It will support people with mental health, helping them overcome social barriers and participate in wider communities.

Sustainability & Improving Lives
