Communities

Impact Arts has strong ethos of partnership working in collaboration with a variety of partners including Third Sector, Local and National Government, Prisons and Housing Associations. We develop and deliver commissioned projects which help our partners fulfil their aims and target social challenges.

 

Make it Your Own

Make it Your Own - Renfrewshire Council

Make it Your Own, a partnership with Renfrewshire Council, is a project that aims to make council tenancies more sustainable through offering people free creative workshops for their home.

Those moving into first time tenancies referred by Renfrewshire Council's Housing Support Service work closely with Impact Arts' artists-in-residence to plan and design exactly what they want to do with their new homes to make it feel somewhere that is truly theirs.

Participants are given a shopping budget and are then taught a variety of creative skills that can be used to upcycle and make decorations and furnishings for the home.

For more information or to discuss further, please contact Housing Support at Renfrewshire Council at referral@renfrewshire.gov.uk , speak to your Housing Advisor or Housing Support Officer, or contact Linda Burke at Impact Arts on 07875 068 931 or at linda.burke@impactarts.co.uk.
