Escape is a charity based in Warwickshire with a core belief that enhancing people’s lives strengthens our communities. Escape uses a unique model of participatory arts and heritage activity to respond to social, health, educational and well-being needs, through integrated sessions, health initiatives and targeted interventions. We offer inclusive access to high quality, hands on-creative activity addressing isolation and empowering individual achievement, progression and recognition. An established programme of locally led, weekly creative workshops across Warwickshire offers participants a regular routine in a friendly and safe environment, directly supporting those who find themselves marginalized within their community. Escape creates opportunities for individuals of all ages to engage in creative activities, connect with like-minded people; make new friends and share experiences, providing a stimulus to keep people active, motivated and involved in community life. Integral to this is a highly valued volunteer programme. Escape Arts has been collaborating with local professional artists for over 20 years, both through commissions and working within the community; we gained the Pride of Stratford award for Educator of the Year 2018, the Queens Award for Volunteer Services in 2019 and also gained the NHS accredited Quality for Health award.
