    Creative Futures



Independent Arts is a small charity based on the Isle of Wight founded in 1987. We use the arts as a tool to improve health, wellbeing and quality of life for older people, and others in our community facing disadvantage or social isolation.


Our 'Eleven Hours' Campaign

It is estimated that after sleeping, eating, washing and dressing, elderly people living alone and in care homes have approximately eleven hours in the day left to fill.  For many this time passes very slowly and can feel endless, lonely and boring.

Through our work in care homes and the community, we aim to help people spend this time in meaningful and enjoyable creative activity.

Please support Independent Arts' 2014 campaign to tackle social isolation and ensure that no older person has to spend their last days with only the ticking of a clock for company.
