“Sparking creativity, curiosity and conversation … “

Bounce creates original, imaginative and brave work.

Our aim is to unlock creative potential through a programme of grassroots arts projects. Working with people in unusual spaces, we entwine making great art with opportunities for participants to make creativity a part of everyday life.

We believe in the value of creativity to inspire great art or innovate the world around us. We are also passionate about its ability to increase wellness and bring people together.  Working with the conviction there isn’t a one size fits all approach to being creative, we co-create everything with our participants. Our intention to ensure creativity remains a personal and sustainable part of life during and post our projects. 

In the last year alone we worked with 1700 people and created over 70,000 opportunities for participation in the arts. This ranged from hosting conversations about mental health to discovering Hans Christian Anderson stories for the first time with teenagers. It resulted in a range of actives. From new writing, to gallery exhibitions to regenerating communities spaces through art.

We’re proud to be able to do what we do and welcome anyone along to join in. Find out more. 


Each year we work with hundreds of young people and their families. Read some of the highlights and stories of our past work. Celebrate how creativity has become part of people’s lives.
