Make Yourself at Home Case Study
Make Yourself at Home was a research project delivered in 2021 by creative practitioners Laura Mabbutt and Kathleen Smith under the collaborative name ‘Making Up Your Street’. The project was funded by Arts Council England with support from Right Up Our Street and worked in collaboration with Transported Art and Evergreen Care Trust. The project looked into effective ways to work remotely with people using craft based activities to offer opportunities to be creative at home and aid wellbeing. It offered bespoke craft kits to participants after an initial consultation of the person’s likes, strengths and preferred activity as well as preferred methods and formats for learning. The project worked with 20 participants over 6 months and delivered 3 x designed craft kits to each of those participants
during that time. The research from the project is made available for others to learn from in the form of this case study.

Creative People and Places Cultural Ecology Report
The team had the pleasure of meeting Jonathon Gross, one half of the writers behind this paper on CPP cultural ecology; ‘Creating the Environment: The cultural eco-systems of Creative People and Places’.
As a CPP organisation, we feel it’s important to consider our place in the community, and how we achieve impact in the places that we serve. This paper examines some of the deeper questions we could consider to broaden our understanding of our place and our own ecology’s value.
