In our recent Giving Superhero Competition the Over 18’s category was won jointly by 6 students from Rowan. Richard (Our Founder and CEO) and I were delighted to be able to visit them recently to deliver their prizes and let them know first-hand how delighted we were to receive their designs.
Rowan is a Cambridge based charity and arts centre for learning disabled people. They provide a safe, creative and welcoming environment where they use the arts as a tool to bring people together; break down issues of social exclusion and improve health and wellbeing.
Set up in 1984 to improve the lives of learning-disabled people through the provision of services and meaningful activities. It is a charity with a strong social enterprise ethos, which seeks to enhance the sustainability and future of Rowan for its beneficiaries. They are based on Humberstone Road in Cambridge, and run a number of studios including wood, ceramics, print, textiles and mixed media.
We were given a full tour of their studios and were able to meet many of their students. We are looking forward to using the designs in future marketing.
