Contactless Creativity

Running since September 2020, Contactless Creativity is a project that offers those in the West Berkshire area who are currently shielding or who do not have access to the internet the opportunity to keep creative and feel connected at a time when they may be having less frequent contact with their friends and family or are unable to take part in their usual pastimes.

Each week we work with a different artist to present creative activities that can be accessed online or, for those who do not have access to the internet, can be delivered as a pack to homes by one of our volunteers.

These packs include activity sheets and materials for creative tasks such as painting or writing. Recipients also receive audio messages from the artist that talk through the creative exercises. You can find out more about the project, or take part online and browse through previous week's activities here.
