Creative Lives developed its own bespoke organisational evaluation system to plan, monitor, evaluate and communicate the effectiveness of our work. We call this The Difference We Make.

During the second year of the pandemic, we came together as a team to change our name from Voluntary Arts to Creative Lives, reflecting the evolution of our work and our vision for the future. The year also saw us organising two Get Creative campaigns which sought to address some of the loneliness and isolation caused by the pandemic, and exploring the issues facing everyday creativity as groups started to reconvene after the restrictions.
