Our Vision

We are one of Arts Council England’s Creative People and Places projects.

Our ambition is to:

+ increase the number of people from our area taking part in and inspired by the arts.

+ enable people to speak up for what they value about the arts and to influence what happens in the area

+ explore new ways of presenting the arts in places where people live, work and play

+ test out new ways of marketing and promoting the arts

Now 5 years into a 10 year project, to date Creative Scene has engaged more than 300,000 people who don’t usually get involved in the arts, in taking part and making things happen in the places they live, work and socialise.
