2Create is an arts collaborative set up in the summer of 2013 by 12 former Open Arts participants. Personnel have come and gone but we still have a core membership who originate from various backgrounds, age groups, and artistic abilities and we pride ourselves on providing a continuing opportunity for creative expression for nearly seven years.

We are fortunate in being able to rent studio space within HOFS House, part of the Hadleigh Old Fire Station community, arts and culture facility. 2Create provides our members with a positive and relaxing environment where they can feel supported, and gain continuing development. Overall the group looks to maintain the Open Arts ethos of providing those suffering mental health conditions the opportunity to develop their creative skills while promoting the wellbeing of themselves and others. 2Create aims to help members gain confidence, skills, and the experience required to promote their own work. From time to time the opportunity arises to participate in exhibitions, workshops, and to take part in various creative projects while becoming a valuable member of the local arts community.

There is space available for new members on most days of the week. Enquiries can be addressed via Open Arts or to:-
