Who We Are
Generating Opportunity CIC is an inclusive arts project which works with individuals who use support.
We use the medium of the creative arts, including photography, drawing and painting, crafting, creative writing, reminiscence activity and film to deliver activities which encourage people to express themselves, dream big and get the most from life.
We work with clients as creative collaborators and learn from them as we share and develop common interests. This enables us to strengthen diverse voices, promote wellbeing and strengthen communities.
We work with partners to widen the networks of arts-based opportunities for our clients.
We work with artists to enable them to share what they do best and develop new ideas and opportunities through engaging with our diverse groups.
