We are a driving force for the arts, recognised nationally and internationally for devising and delivering integrated programmes that inspire, surprise and delight. We work in some of the most deprived communities in the UK yet have a longstanding track record of powerful, high quality work, demonstrating profound social and economic impacts. Our portfolio includes prize-winning public art for breath-taking landscape settings. Commissions of bold, contemporary work combine dynamically with exemplary programmes of creative learning and creative community engagement. Strong relationships with extensive networks of local partners have been consolidated over decades.
We are a Pennine Lancashire organisation, identifying strongly with our communities whilst working across Lancashire and into Pennine Yorkshire and Greater Manchester. Developing regional partnerships reinforce our programme. Our national connections enable the sharing of best practice and benchmark our work. International links enrich our creative possibilities.
Our broad, creative palette centres on contemporary visual arts. With extensive experience in rural and urban public realm, we add specialisms in environmental, land and public art, architecture and landscape design. Our highly skilled, multidisciplinary team integrates expertise in:
- Commissioning high quality, original work
- Community engagement and creative learning
- Partnership building
- Devising and delivering creative projects
Our Mission: Art + People + Places
We bring art, people and places together to transform perceptions and change lives.
