Creating Change

Creating Change is a national network of organisations involved in creative participatory group work with children and young people at risk. It connects artists, practitioners and organisations so that practice, research and resources can be shared. Creating Change brings together those who use participatory arts and dynamic group work, where collaboration between young people engages their thoughts, attitudes, emotions, and beliefs with an emphasis on self-development. The network supports training opportunities, disseminates best practice and acts as a hub for the sharing of resources and information. Creating Change website >
