Creative Lives is a charity, established in 1991, that champions community and volunteer-led creative activity, and work to improve opportunites for everyone to be creative. In particular, they celebrate and promote people expressing themselves creatively with others, recognising the benefits this can bring.
Creative Lives works with communities, organisations, policy-makers, funders and creative individuals as a voice for positive change, to improve and expand the landscape in which creative participation can take place. They work to address inequalities in access to creative participation, promote inclusivity, connect people and communities, and seek to increase awareness of the links between creativity and wellbeing.
They have teams based across the UK and Ireland and are funded by Arts Council England, the Arts Council of Ireland, Creative Scotland and the Arts Council of Wales.
