As part of the tradition at Dusted during the festive season, we have opted out of sending seasonal cards and instead selected a charity organisation we feel really help those in need. This year, we are supporting Create, who use creative arts to help transform the lives of the vulnerable and disadvantaged.
Create is all about engaging with those who truly need it, and offering them sustainable programmes that they would otherwise never have been able to experience. Their work has the ability to inspire confidence and transform lives by utilising artistic engagement in areas where that kind of creative opportunity is not available. With funding and support, they can nurture talent and potential to help individuals’ unique talents.
Create works with many different people on many projects, from the elderly to deprived areas to the disabled. One such project is creative:space, an interactive music event for disabled children and families. This project offered disadvantaged young people a safe space to listen to music and develop their creative skills.
It’s this sort of project, along with the many like it, that inspired Dusted to donate to the charity, and we hope that we can inspire others to follow suit.
Create’s core values often mirror our own, with emphasis on creativity, integrity and passion. Developing creative talents is very much at the heart of Dusted’s beliefs and we hope Create will continue to grow and help those in need for many years to come.
To Create and all those reading, we wish you happy holidays and a great new year!
