Staffordshire CreateSpace

CreateSpace is a combined arts project supporting adults to find time to be creative in their everyday lives. The programme has been developed by Creative Health with Galleries, Museums and Libraries in Walsall, Wolverhampton, Birmingham and Staffordshire. The project is funded through an award from Arts Council England, National Lottery Project Grants Scheme.

Staffordshire Libraries worked with partners Creative Health and Artists Phil Duckworth and Ben Sadler at Juneau Projects to set up a creative social group on Facebook during the Covid-19 Lockdown.

Adults living in the Staffordshire area were invited to join the group and take part in weekly creative activities carried out in their own time at home. Below is a resource of these activities available to download:

If I Were a Bird…

If I Were a Bird…

What would I do?

Sing a song? See a friend? Cosy up in my nest with a good book?

On a blank card or postcard sized piece of paper, draw yourself as a bird and write what you would do. Then you could post your card to someone to brighten their day!
