What we do
We work with artists, in partnership with other organisations, to create opportunities for people to participate in ambitious arts activity. We work across a range of art forms including visual arts, film-making, creative writing, graphic design, animation, street dance, music and DJ-ing as well as photography, drama and textiles. We work with people of all abilities, of all ages.
Why we do it
Our participants say their confidence, motivation and skills are boosted. Fresh opportunities for employability are opened up and many move into education and training. Health and well-being improve.
Participants see themselves differently during and after a high quality Helix Arts programme. Co-produced events, performances and exhibitions give audiences the opportunity to see participants in a very different light too.
Helix Arts programmes transform the lives and spirits of artists, participants and audiences.
We believe participation in creative activity is fundamental to the well-being of individuals and communities and therefore should be accessible to all.
