Pay it forward Arts Prescriptions
This concept has been developed by the Incubator Creative Hub after a successful pilot with support from the ANZ Staff Foundation.
As a result of recent major studies surrounding art and wellbeing and from the huge positive outcomes that we see when individuals and groups participate in creative activity, the Incubator Creative Hub has developed a programme enabling access to the creative workshops for groups and individuals that can positively benefit from this type of activity.
We know the benefits that participation in the arts can have on individuals and also in building strong communities and society as a whole.
We are looking for corporate, business, and private donors to contribute the costs toward delivering a good dose of the Arts to those in need.
