Welcome to Creative Future

Creative Future provide training, mentoring and the chance to publish or exhibit to talented people who lack opportunities due to mental health issues, disability, health, identity or other social circumstance.

Creative Future are a bridge from the margins to the mainstream. We aim to inspire aspiration and artistic excellence amongst under-represented artists and writers.

We increase their confidence, enabling them to re-engage in the community by offering publishing and exhibiting opportunities to ‘get their work out there’; challenging their own and other people’s perception of their potential.
