Organisation aims and objectives

Bazooka Arts is a charity that specialises in therapeutic arts interventions for people of all ages and abilities who are adversely affected by inequalities such as: mental ill health; disabilities; long term conditions and poverty. We believe that creativity has the potential to act as a positive agent for personal, social and cultural transformation. This has led us to develop a person-centred approach to creative practice which is based on the principles of empowerment and equality. We have evidenced that arts participation has a powerful role to play in the promotion of positive mental health & wellbeing of participants, and in developing active citizenship within well connected communities.
