Creative Connections

Creative Connections was an Art Research Project based at Wellspring Settlement which ran in November 2021 and March 2022. Under-represented parents shared their experience of the pandemic and contributed to changes for all families to thrive in the future. The campaign based on this project will launch in October 2022, and you can read more about this, and the policy paper launch that the project contributed to here.
