We are delighted to have been mentioned in a Motion of Support in
the Scottish Parliament, congratulating us on our creative wellbeing project with residents of Care Homes in Perth and Kinross. We have developed an online film library of reminiscence and arts-based activities to share with participants, supported by arts materials and guidance. Our participants also include creative collaborators from local arts groups. We plan to showcase their work in an exhibition called Brighter Days Ahead, supported by Culture Perth and Kinross,
at the end of this year.
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.
Richmond House celebrated Carers Week with a tea party and residents wrote carers a message and mounted them on their marbelled paper.
We love the Haiku poems you have been writing, so we put Helen's beautiful words on a decorative marbled print.
See lots more poems and stories on our Creative Wellbeing pages.
Marbling is one of our latest activities, beautifully exemplified by our creative collaborators at The Walled Garden and Wisecraft.
