Escape Community Arts is a charity, our mission is to provide participatory arts and arts health and well-being programmes for young people, adults and communities primarily in Warwickshire. Escape provides high quality, high impact participatory arts interventions which enrich lives and inspire. Workshops are open to all and we take referrals from mental health services, day and residential care for young people and for adults with learning and physical disabilities.
Escape's core work is integrated, enabling people from different backgrounds to work together & support one another. Specialised programmes engage particular groups of people & communities to in safe and supportive environments with experienced staff & artists to assist them to engage in the wider community. People benefit from feeling less isolated, developing new skills, increase their confidence, share and celebrate their achievements through showcases, exhibitions and festivals.
Participants tell us that taking part in Escapes' projects have helped them to develop new skills and interests, increase their confidence in their ability, make new friendship. For some of the most vulnerable people the project supports they tell us Escape has helped them to re-engage and move forward in their lives, taking part in the wider community though volunteering, training, education and gaining employment.
There are always opportunities to volunteer with Escape we are presently recruiting Trustees, Friends of Escape (who support events and develop fund rasing activities) and specific roles related to administration, project support. If your interesting in finding out more please contact us.
