Welcome to Espression Arts 

Espression Arts supports community organisations and their clients to get creative through the delivery of fun, collaborative arts and wellbeing workshops and personalised tools to enable creative access and increased confidence for everyone!

Espression Arts CIC combines an active commercial arm, with a clear social purpose and a passion for our local, Kent, community. This combination enables us to invest profits from quality, creative, workshops and activities back into our local communities to help us deliver our creative vision and enable access to visual arts and wellbeing for everyone.

Strong community partnerships at a neighbourhood level, successful applications to grant-giving bodies along with our online sales and donations enable us to provide workshops for free, develop our creative vision and sustain activity.

We want to build on our strong Canterbury District reputation and our established project delivery to embrace new client groups and communities further afield. We recognise the impact of the COVID19 Pandemic on mental and physical health and wish to expand into new communities in East Kent, develop even more arts and craft tools and techniques for the inclusion of our harder-to-reach, isolated and vulnerable communities.
