Family projects

Groundswell Arts creates free and accessible projects for families held in children’s centres, libraries, schools and community spaces. We believe in the power of shared creative experiences and seek to develop projects that not only nurture creativity in children and young people but in their whole families.

Play Based programmes

Groundswell develops family projects for children in the early years such as Play Labs and Space to Create which explore environments using light, sound, projection, art, play and movement
