Helix Arts has delivered high quality, safe arts experiences throughout the pandemic.

On Monday 19th July, most restrictions associated with pandemic were lifted and wearing a face covering is now a personal choice in England, however we also know many people may still choose to wear face covering, particularly those who are more vulnerable.

We are committed to ensuring all our participants, partners, volunteers, artists and employees are kept as safe as possible. So, for the time being, we will be continuing to encourage everyone taking part in in-person sessions (unless exempt) to wear face coverings, maintain social distancing, regularly sanitise their hands and to not attend sessions if they feel unwell or have a high temperature.

Thank you for your understanding.

Helix Arts is an arts charity that wants to create equality of opportunity for communities to take part in the arts.

We are Helix Arts

We have been collaborating creating change since 1983. We believe participation in creative activity is fundamental to the wellbeing of individuals and communities and therefore should be accessible to all. We increase equality of opportunity for people to take part in the arts and our focus is on those who currently have the least opportunities.

What we do and why we do it

We believe art, cultural practices and everyday creativity can help us through our lives.

Our art amplifies little-heard voices, helping people feel more healthy and optimistic, and helping people to understand the world and to think about new ways they can educate and equip themselves for uncertain futures.

We use art to generate a much-needed, renewed sense of community.

We do this by connecting exceptionally skilled artists with diverse groups of people from a wide range of backgrounds to co-produce, co-curate and co-evaluate art.

Our work addresses personal and social issues and experiences, contributes to genuine social change, and generates social and cultural capital.

Our recent and current work has a strong emphasis on health and social inclusion.
