Move & Make was an inclusive arts and drama project, offering weekly creative workshops in a range of arts activities, including mixed craft, arts and drama.

Participants gained confidence, creative skills, self-esteem and improved their mental wellbeing – as well as having fun and meeting new people.

The group produced an amazing exhibition in Sun Pier House in July 2017, celebrating their hard work and dedication over the two years that the project ran.
