HOOT from home
Being creative makes you feel good

HOOT from home offers accessible creative activities that you can take part in at home. We believe that the arts are for everyone, even if you don’t think of yourself as creative but we understand how daunting it can be to take part in a creative activity if you don’t feel that you are ‘good at it’ so each HOOT from home activity has been designed by a professional community artist/musician, with no need for specialised art materials or instruments. Discover how being creative makes you feel good.

How do I get involved?

  • Visit to see all the open creative activities running. You can join in with harmony singing, Make your Mark (Visual Arts) or record some sounds with Play your Part (Digital Music). Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or join our mailing list for updates.
  • If you're over 18, living in Kirklees, and want to protect your mental health you can access our Out of the Blue online creative sessions. Just like our in-person groups, they're free to access and are run by professional community artists. Email HOOT to register your interest and be contacted when these sessions launch.

  • We have a selection of our previous gigs, online singing and Think Gigs talks available online for free here. You can also listen to a selection of our previous compilation albums on our Bandcamp page.
