Being Heard is a music and work based project which aims to support people in learning the theory of music and how to compose and arrange music pieces. Our music group also gains vocal and instrument tuition. Our musicians and singers gain fulfilment by being active performers and by performing music shows at local venues. The group has also networked with the Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre Trust, and will be working with them on their ?Arts Champions? project. The project is facilitated by an experienced music teacher

VeraNicArt is a visual arts and work based project (VeraNic - meaning ?True Image?), which aims to support people to show off aspects of their lives through the medium of art, as well as imaginative and themed artworks and crafts. The group gain study in all aspects of art and can be considered practicing artists. We have recently had an arts and history exhibition in the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, titled Empowered, in which our artists have contributed all the works on display. The project is led by a qualified art tutor
