Benefits of Creativity
Cornubia will become a focus for engagement, inspiration and opportunity for people of all ages and abilities. Creative workshops will be used to inspire, motivate and develop people, helping break-down barriers, reduce social isolation and build confidence. It will also provide a base for local artisans & social entrepreneurs to encourage collaboration and develop a creative environment. The mental and physical benefits of doing creative activity are well documented. Cornubia’s creative activities will help people develop their confidence, enhance their self-esteem and reduce feelings of isolation. We will use creativity to engage and inspire people from all walks of life creating a deeper sense of understanding, belonging and community spirit through shared experiences and fun. By working with local artisans offering their creative and teaching skills at reduced costs, we aim to extend these benefits to local people living with disability or long-term illness at affordable rates. The availability of affordable, local based creative activities will make a difference to quality of peoples’ lives.
