National initiative for creative education​

Achieving through creativity​

Since 2016, National Initiative for Creative Education (NICE) has been serving the local community as a multicultural hub for Hull and East Yorkshire. Through our engagement, participatory and artistic work, we create the bridge between indigenous and multiethnic population of the UK. At the heart of our vision are artistic, educational and mental health projects aiming to break barriers, create an integrated and cohesive community and support people's wellbeing. We believe that engaging people in the creative and cultural activities allows them to live in a diverse, inclusive and harmonious society.

Bringing people and communities together

let’s work together to make art, education, and culture accessible to all

Our participatory and engagement projects allow members of all communities in Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire to access art, culture, education and mindfulness services and workshops. We work with local organisations and companies to overcome barriers of participation and to support people in achieving their personal and community goals.
