The Guildford Creativity Bank

Ali is the Founder of The Guildford Creativity Bank. The aim of The Guildford Creativity Bank is to share creative resources in the local community so that everyone can experience the joys of creativity. This project was started during lockdown, inspired by all the rainbows and blue hearts decorating our pavements & windows. It reminded us how important creativity can be for our mental health, self-expression and happiness and that creativity should be accessible to all. Donations of arts and crafts materials are collected from the local community and passed on to local families.
