Impact Arts is a charity aiming to make a difference…creatively. They believe each and every one of us can be creative. They use arts, it all its guises, to help people make positive lasting change in their lives, whether they are 3 or 93 years old.
Their programmes span generations. They work with young people to help increase life prospects and prevent homelessness, and older people to prevent isolation and loneliness and encourage social inclusion. Established in 1994 in Glasgow, the charity now runs projects across Scotland with the help of 50 staff and over 200 freelance artists.
Why does creativity matter in the workplace?
Participation in arts activities helps both mental health and workforce wellbeing. The charity run Creative Wellbeing Workshops, hands on ways for employees to de-stress, re connect and build stronger teams.
Research shows staff activities like these workshops help build group dynamics, foster resilience and company loyalty, and inspire staff to think in different ways.
