Creative Carefree

Young people at Carefree have enjoyed an amazing variety of art projects over the years including animation, film-making, drama, Gamelan drumming, singing, music making, graffitti art and much, much more


Each year we offer summer arts activity weeks where young people come together to explore, experience art whilst having a load of fun
