Independent Arts is a small charity based on the Isle of Wight founded in 1987. We use the arts as a tool to improve health, wellbeing and quality of life for older people, and others in our community facing disadvantage or social isolation.
Through our work with older people, we address the main issues faced by our ageing community (the Isle of Wight, for example, has the largest percentage of people with dementia in the country).
We have vast experience of delivering a wide range of arts activities. Through our Workshops for Wellbeing programme, we deliver creative work in residential homes and other centres across the Isle of Wight.
Our funded projects allow us to seek new ways to reach people in the community through engagement in the arts and creative activity.
