Friends of the Academy
Who we are:
Expressions Academy CIC is a Christian arts based company in Hemel Hempstead, with the vision to see thousands of people of all ages, regardless of belief, impacted positively by the creative arts.
Our team has an extremely varied background in arts, with focuses on dance, drama, music and art to initiate our creative spaces.
We want to make a positive difference in the local community, by creating safe spaces for individuals to learn, explore and create through the arts, encouraging creativity, freedom and transformation.
Our hope is to induce a better quality of life and relationship with God (for those who are seeking it). We restore a regular pattern of arts engagement alongside opportunities to explore life questions, spirituality and the Christian faith in a safe, creative and interactive way.
Expressions Academy aims to reach individuals who need creative outlets but struggle to access them through various socioeconomic factors such as funds, ability, age and accessibility. For the individuals who participate in our programmes we aim to see better emotional resilience, contemplation and healing, contentment and positive wellbeing, self-confidence, purpose, physical health, a new-found freedom, a sense of belonging to the community and a better understanding of God.
Our team offers a range of classes, workshops and performances in many forms of creative arts for children, young people and adults. We also facilitate events for churches, schools, care homes, parties and more; continually looking to form relationships in the community and offer more creative expression to such events!
