Spirit of 2012’s Creative funding portfolio supports projects that provide opportunities for people to come together and increase wellbeing and social cohesion through a wide variety of art and cultural experiences.

The Creative projects provide regular sustained opportunities for participation in the arts and culture for defined beneficiary groups and explore how engagement in arts and culture can make people feel about themselves and their communities. They also include opportunities for people to lead and produce artistic/cultural work and allow for people to develop and showcase their talent, often creating pathways to volunteering opportunities and employment.
