Inspiration Works is the name of the creative wellbeing projects we run at OTR, and of our studio space in central Bristol.
Inspiration Works is about exploring your creativity and connecting with others to support your wellbeing. All the activities we run are free and there’s no need to book, just turn up!
Here’s where Inspiration Works is based:
We don’t expect you to be good at the activity already, just come along and see if you get something positive from it. Whether you’re feeling great and want to join in and meet others, or if you’re finding things difficult at the moment and would like a bit of support, there’s always something interesting on the Inspiration Works timetable.
If you’re a young person and would like to share a skill with Inspiration Works, please get in touch. You may want to take photos at an event, run a workshop during the holidays or help us come up with an activity to run in one of our groups. Ideas are very welcome!
Below are some of the activities currently running each week at Inspiration Works. These can and will change throughout the year though, so to stay up to date with what’s going on keep an eye on this page or sign-up to the OTR E-Newsletter.
These are the heartbeat of Inspiration Works! They are a great opportunity to connect with other young people aged 11-25, to be creative and make whatever stuff you want – even if you just love colouring in! Download a flyer
We run a monthly Book Club for 16-25 year olds which, in collaboration with Give a Book, provides free books to keep and discuss. The Book Club is held @ The Hydra Book Shop, Old Market, BS2 0EZ, a safe place for young people to gather and meet like-minded book-lovers, as well as read titles they may not have previously considered. Each month we each select three book choices and run a Doodle Poll to vote for our top choice. Download a flyer
