HOOT Creative Arts is a local arts and health organisation that promotes mental health, supports personal growth and facilitates social change. We give people the chance to explore identity, emotional wellbeing, purpose & meaning in a safe, expressive & welcoming environment.
As specialists working with adults with mental health needs alongside a committed team of experienced professional, community artists, we offer a full programme of quality creative activities with proven benefits for mental health and wellbeing.
We work with older people too, including pioneering work using the arts with people living with dementia conditions and their carers.
We believe that everyone has a creative capacity that can help them grow and develop, and that through supporting people to flourish as individuals and groups we can help communities and wider society to grow too.
