Using the arts to improve people's wellbeing, quality of life and to reduce social isolation on the Isle of Wight, since 1987.
We were delighted to welcome The Earl of Wessex to our Creative Hub in Newport on 24th May.
Step out during May for our 70 Mile May fundraising challenge, walking 70 miles during the month – the equivalent of the Isle of Wight's coastal footpaths.
Our Reconnect project works with people to improve wellness, build confidence and boost mental health using creativity.
This two-minute video was created by our first cohort of 20-25 year olds and shown at our Hub Hosts event to all participants in November.
As part of their work looking at their place in the world, they created this piece of work, 'One World', combining poetry, digital art and spoken word.
To continue to help protect the health of our participants, staff and volunteers, Independent Arts is maintaining a policy of mask-wearing while visiting our Creative Hub and at our sessions in the community.
To get in touch or book or to find out a little more, please call 01983 822437 or email [email protected]
We are open Monday to Saturday 9am – 4.30pm and the Creative Hub in Newport is open 10am – 4.30pm six days a week.
We recognise that our services are needed now more than ever and we are extremely grateful to our principle funders for their continued support and their encouragement. We are a small local charity working exclusively for the vulnerable residents of the Isle of Wight. You can help us keep going by making a donation – and if you are a UK tax payer, gift aid can be added, which tops up your donation by a further 25%.
