Covid-19 update: While we can't see you all face-to-face just now, you can come and join us in our new online sessions!

We want to see an inclusive society, where everyone gets the chance to shine. We’re helping to make that happen in York.

We’re a registered charity based in Chapelfields, York. We've been running arts and creative media learning projects in and around the city since 1982.

A lot of people take part in our projects. From disabled young people and adults, to older people with dementia and memory loss and people with mental health problems. We help them develop the confidence and skills to connect with their local community and have more of a say in the things that matter to them.

And everyone has a lot of fun along the way!
