Skippko Arts Team

Skippko’s mission is to use the arts to transform lives.

Skippko runs innovative and exciting visual arts projects. We use creativity to develop individuals, groups and communities.

Skippko believes in:

People
.... And Fun!

Each of Skippko’s projects is uniquely tailor-made to suit its participants, and Skippko artists act as group facilitators, bringing people together using a wide range of creative techniques. Working as a group creates a safe and non-threatening environment, where participants can increase their confidence, skills and wellbeing, in a way and a setting that is right for them. The length of each project varies depending on the needs of group members but is generally between 10 and 15 weeks, with sessions running for two hours a week, in venues where participants already meet and feel comfortable, such as community centres, church halls, temples and day centres.
