Since forming in 2014, GoCreate has continued to build strong relationships with local community groups and charities with the focus on a creative journey and finding a voice through Arts and Culture to feel accepted within the wider community.
In Isolation Arts
GoCreate have been busy during Lockdown with various projects ‘In Isolation’.
When we entered ’Lockdown’ the most natural direction for us was to reach out to those vulnerable communities and offer support.
With support from Taunton Rotary Club and The Somerset Community Foundation, we sent out art packs to vulnerable adults and children inviting them to paint their stories of being ’In Isolation on a canvas square… these will all be sewn together to create large banners of collective responses and displayed in a public space for all to see.
Black Lives Matter
In June 2020, GoCreate put out a ‘Call Out’ to local artists in response to the events unfolding during and after the tragic death of George Floyd in America.
“Now is the time to unite and use our voices to fight systematic racism and injustice. GoCreate invites artists to share their support of #BlackLivesMatter through the power of art’.
… And respond they did!
