Independent Arts offers a diverse range of creative programmes for adults, to meet a variety of different interests and needs.

Some of our programmes are designed simply to get you out of the house, doing something creative with likeminded people (often over a nice cup of tea). Others are designed for people facing particular issues – respiratory problems, neurological conditions affecting movement, or poor mental health – to help improve wellbeing.

What all of our programmes have in common, is that they offer fun and creativity in a safe and friendly environment. Click on the links below to find out what we can offer you.
