Picture the Difference CIC

Picture the Difference CIC logo


Picture the Difference (PtD) is a creative and performing arts organisation for children and young adults with additional needs. It co-produces purposeful community outcomes on relatable social themes. It allows those involved to develop their creative skills and personal qualities while showcasing their work. Picture the Difference encourages independence and employability skills by supporting individuals to share a skill, volunteer, develop their own art projects, and (maybe) become a PtD Arts Leader. 

Picture the Difference recognises that to support wellbeing, health, and happiness, people must find their place, purpose, and a way to participate in their community.

Food is crucial to wellbeing, so Picture the Difference encourages healthy choices and provides home-cooked food at lunchtimes.
