Idea Space is a not-for-profit arts organisation based in E11, Waltham Forest. We deliver arts-based outreach projects with public, community participation and learning. Idea Space builds artistic skills and confidence in a supportive environment and we encourage the process of learning through creative exploration and collaboration.
We believe that creativity enriches lives and is for everyone to engage with. It has the potential to have a positive impact on people’s lives and helps us to understand each other better through shared experience.
We are interested in widening participation and access to the arts by addressing issues of inequality, diversity and inclusion. We aim to improve community cohesion through shared experience, offering accessible workshops in familiar community settings, public realms and schools. Our work is integrated into the curriculum and after school, and led by artists, educators and industry professionals.
