Escape has established a reputation across the West Midlands as an organisation which is about collaboration and health as it is about arts and culture. Escape sits on the West Midlands Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance, the Coventry and Warwickshire Creative Health Alliance and is the Culture representative for the Warwickshire Third Sector, Public and Private Sector Partnership Group. We also work with RISE, addressing mental or ill health in the youth.
Escape works with partners from across these sectors, to advocate the impact of arts and culture on improving health and wellbeing and ensure effective signposting further opportunities. We work with a wide range of partner organisations to develop collaborative creative projects, ensuring our work has the greatest reach across our communities.
If you are interesting in commissioning Escape Arts to work with a specific client group please contact [email protected] We will arrange to meet you to discuss your requirements from which we will design an appropriate creative programme.
Referrals & Social Prescribing
Our established referral process ensure we find the right project for the right person, with the right support. We work with over 35 organisations who directly refer or signpost people to the projects. We will always invite new people to come in and meet us so we can find out more about their interests and which projects may be the best fit. This also enables us to discuss any access needs. We welcome practitioners wishing to refer a client to one of our participants. Get in touch in order to discuss the most effective way of doing this.
New participants can then try a free taster session. If you need help to access the groups we can advise you on how to obtain funding or resources for the appropriate support. Escape cannot provide one to one support without additional funding support, however, we are happy to arrange with you to put this in place. Escape sessions are donation led, recommended donation per session is £5.
To make a referral please contact us on [email protected] or call us on (01789)532110 – answer machine in operation.
