Since our regular creative groups have not been able to meet during lockdown, we have been bringing creativity and connectedness to them! Many of our centre users do not have access to online resources, so we have been sending out around 30 weekly creative packs through the post. Over this period we will build up a collection of creative works to be celebrated and exhibited once restrictions are lifted.
Alongside this, staff and volunteers at the centre have been sharing videos of what they have been doing to keep busy and active through The Whiteinch Centre YouTube channel. These have included cooking, crafts, storytelling and exercise and we can’t wait to see what they come up with next! Check out and subscribe to the channel at
We're now exhibiting community artworks in our centre's front windows and we've been really exciting by the response from everyone! we're still collecting so feel free to drop any works into our letter box marked 'Elena' !
If you or anyone you know would like to receive a postal pack or get involved in our Creativity Connects project, then just send an email to or ping over a wee facebook message and we look forward to creatively connecting with you!
