How your donation will help:
- £5 pays for the art materials for a learning-disabled adult to take part in a Get Creative workshop
- £14 pays to keep our building heated for a day so that vulnerable participants can visit us to take part in creative activity
- £75 pays for one day of our Programme Assistant’s time, so we can make sure that everyone we work with has the support they need
We also welcome donations by cheque – payable to City Arts (Nottingham) Ltd and posted to City Arts, 11-13 Hockley, Nottingham, NG1 1FH.
I did some art before attending Get Creative but not as much as I do now. When you’ve got other people around you, you feel more motivated and inspired.Read our Get Creative group's story
