What We Do

Art, Participation, Community, Culture and Learning

We’re Idea Space. We specialise in providing creative opportunities in the arts to all ages and abilities. We start from the community’s needs, and deliver workshops, bespoke co-designed projects, mentoring and training.

We work in partnership with local communities, professional artists, and grassroots organisations to help bridge the gap in access to the creative sector, building skills and confidence in the arts.
We’re based in Leytonstone, East London and also work in other parts of the UK.

Ways in which Idea Space is making a positive impact on the community:

Providing creative opportunities to people of all ages and abilities. Idea Space offers a wide range of arts workshops, programmes, and events for people of all ages and abilities. This includes programmes for children, young people, adults, and seniors, as well as programmes for people with disabilities.

Building skills and confidence in the arts. Idea Space’s programmes are designed to help people develop their artistic skills and confidence. This can help people to express themselves creatively, learn new skills, and build self-esteem.

Bridging the gap in access to the creative sector. Idea Space works in partnership with local communities, professional artists, and grassroots organisations to make the arts more accessible to everyone. This includes working with people from disadvantaged backgrounds and people who live in areas where there is limited access to arts and culture.
Promoting social and environmental change. Idea Space uses the arts to promote social and environmental change. For example, Idea Space has offered programmes that focus on issues such as climate change, social justice, and community cohesion.

Overall, Idea Space is a valuable asset to the community. It is an organization that is committed to making the arts accessible to everyone and using the arts to promote positive change.

Examples of the ways in which Idea Space’s programs are making a difference:

A young person with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) is able to express themselves creatively through Idea Space’s creative club program.

An unemployed adult learns to develop their digital arts skills through Idea Space’s digital art workshop.

A group of seniors from the local community builds social cohesion through Idea Space’s community arts project.

A group of young people from a diverse range of backgrounds learn about climate change through Idea Space’s resource “Nature has the Answers”.

Idea Space is an organization that is using the arts to make a positive difference in the world.

The name ‘Idea Space’ comes from Alan Moore’s concept of ideas being accessible, discovered and uncovered by more than one mind tapping into the creative process.

Suggesting that the creative process is not something that is reserved for a select few, but rather something that is open to everyone.
