Creative Engagement

What is creative engagement?

Creative engagement is a tool that Project Twin Streams uses to raise awareness of the causes of stream pollution and the solutions towards healthy streams. Activities such as drawing, painting, drama, singing and sculpture allow people to absorb information in a fun and interesting way.

How has Project Twin Streams used creative engagement?

There are two strands to our creative engagement:

    • Environmental arts activities at Project Twin Streams events such as community planting days and festivals. Examples include the painting of clay fish, paper making from weeds, weaving, badge and clay model making.
    • Long-term projects which span months (and at times years) and draw together various groups, schools and sections of the community are the cornerstone of our creative engagement.

Each year, our Arts Coordinators work on a wide range of projects. To see some of the amazing work they’ve done in the past you can find out more about these projects here:
