Art and Creativity
As we have expanded the range of services on offer at Mustard Tree over recent years, we have been keen to build an emphasis on creativity; we consider it to be one of the key strands of the work that we deliver. We firmly believe that creativity is a key human trait and that the opportunity to express it can be highly therapeutic and an important element of rebuilding lives. Our Creative Programmes Manager, Graham Hudson, oversees our creative activities.
The desire to deliver these programmes whilst also meeting the increased demand on our crisis prevention services (food bank, clothing and furniture) is a daily economic challenge, which often dictates the speed at which development work is able to happen. Mustard Tree remains committed to providing both a ‘hand-up’ as well as a ‘hand-out’ to the increasing number of clients coming through our doors, and our creative programmes strongly reflect that commitment.
