What we do

The team can offer advice on a variety of art forms, including Drama, Film, Dance, Visual Arts, Music and Digital Storytelling.

Arts Development can also help groups explore different issues that affect communities e.g. Drug Awareness, Bullying, Mental Health, Community Safety etc. We develop projects for all ages to develop skills and knowledge in the Arts, creating pride in local communities. Promoting social and mental well - being.

Arts Development assists in the social, environmental and economic growth of the arts and creative industries within the county by providing help. So, if you have an agenda issue we can help with or want to develop local creativity our aim is to help it flourish!

If you have queries, or perhaps need an artists contact for a project, please contact the team on 01495 224425 or email us at and we'll be happy to help and support you in any way we can.
