Hoot Creative Arts About Hoot

Hoot is a flourishing arts & health organisation offering a range of opportunities for people to get involved in music, dance and other creative activities as a way of improving physical and emotional wellbeing. From our base in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, we work with local groups and communities to develop creative projects and services that everyone can take part in.

As specialists working with adults with mental health needs alongside a committed team of experienced community artists, we offer a full programme of quality creative activities with proven benefits for mental health and wellbeing.

Core sessions include harmony singing, drumming & percussion, guitar orchestra, taught forms and improvised dance, song writing and recording, while there are opportunities to explore other art forms like film-making and photography, creative digital technologies, and theatre. With our partner agency AiM (Artists in Mind) we also deliver a range of visual arts activity and creative writing projects.

We work with older people too, including pioneering work using the arts with people living with dementia conditions and their carers and harmony singing for wellbeing for the over 55’s.

With experience gained across Yorkshire and the north of England, Hoot is also able to offer services for purchase: wellbeing at work and workforce development packages, one-off or blocks of workshops, showcase and awareness raising events & performances and consultancy and training.

We believe that everyone has a creative capacity that can help them grow and develop, and that through supporting people to flourish as individuals and groups we can help communities and wider society to grow too.
