Art, it’s all about coming together

Increasing health and wellbeing and providing a sense of place for everyone.

We believe it’s all about participation too, so whether you want to take part in an arts activity, get your school or community group involved in an arts programme – or even if you fancy volunteering – there really is something for everyone!

We offer funding to training opportunities, information on local grants and bursaries for amateur and professional artists and arts organisations, to develop their skills and explore ways of transferring those skills. We promote collaborative creative processes at grassroots level which enhance access and participation and strengthen the community’s sense of authorship and ownership.

To take advantage or our Community Ticketing and Transport Schemes and keep up to date with Community Arts activities, sign up to our Community E–Zine.  Please contact Lynda.
