Element Creative Projects CIC
Element Creative Projects CIC uses visual and performance art and creative writing to help care leavers develop pathways to successful independence. Participants engage in self-reflection, create artwork, develop plans, routines and goals and, if needed, receive referrals to other employability support programmes. At the end of the programme, the art works produced are shown in institutions like Tate Britain, the V&A and the Saatchi Gallery. More than half of Element?s participants who were not in education, employment and training when they joined Element now are. The Fore will fund the salary of one co-founder, while will in turn enable both founders to focus on expanding to meet growing demand and securing longer-term sustainability.
