Our history Magic Carpet has been operating since 1981 and we are one of the many small organisations at the heart of our community in Exeter. We grew out of a group of community spirited students in the 1980's and the name came about because a Magic Carpet takes people to places they don't ordinarily go to. We run a range of creative workshops (see HERE) work with other organisations (HERE) and run projects that connect and bring people together. Many people know someone who has been touched by Magic Carpet, either personally or professionally, either by taking part in a workshop, or a family member who has volunteered or by seeing an exhibition or performance. What makes Magic Carpet special? The artists, support workers and volunteers who work for us have creativity running through their veins, they work hard to ensure each session has the right environment to be creative, including a safe respectful and understanding space. If we need to be reminded how special Magic Carpet is, one quote stands out and highlights the importance of what we do: “ I have found a lovely friend through Magic Carpet, I haven't had friends before”. How precious is that? We don't have the answers to all the worlds problems but we are definitely part of the solutions, please explore our website and find out more about Magic Carpet.
