    Creative Expression, making a mark and being seen and heard is fundamental to being human. We believe that we all have a creative and imaginative capacity that is of central importance to our mental and physical health, wellbeing and happiness. Our aim at Hoot Creative Arts is to release this capacity.

    Our mission is to support the development of creativity to build confidence and esteem, encourage personal growth and foster creative expression. We offer opportunities to participate in quality artistic activities with professional artists to explore identity, emotional wellbeing, purpose and meaning in a safe, expressive and welcoming environment.

    Art is the focus, our creative activities offer therapeutic outcomes for all, regardless of experience. We mean that, even if you don’t consider yourself to be creative, we believe that you have the capacity to create and we extend an invitation to you.

    Hoot Creative Arts is a member of the Kirklees Mental Health Partnership of community adult mental health services from the voluntary sector, working together to provide a better mental health service in Kirklees.?
