A brief overview of how we’re working creatively with people to give ideas legs

 

Lancashire is our home…

 

We’ve been putting our mission into action in the county we live in; by working with volunteers to curate events and increase the cultural offer of Lancashire’s small towns and villages, bringing live literature to pubs, enhancing the cultural events offer of Lancashire libraries, championing the arts through local networks and hubs.

 

Our scope is wider than our county boundary…

 

We work across the North to feed into a wider sector; touring arts programming with regional partners, developing consortium projects – our most recent to offer rural touring mentoring to artists culminating in a northern tour to 7 rural touring schemes.

 

In fact, we’re national….

 

Working digitally allows us to engage with a whole new audience and new partners; delivering our Spot On Stories project for Lancashire Libraries and The Space, undertaking research, evaluation and advocacy for other arts organisations and managing the marketing for a national touring dance initiative.

 

And international…

 

We’re currently working for Erasmus University Rotterdam co-editing a new online book chronicling the experiences of professionals working in Arts And Culture from around the World. We are active members of the newly formed Arts in Rural European Areas, a creative network of venues, producers and artists who work in a rural context across Europe. This is part of our vision to share good practice and collaborate with others to put rural places on the map.
