We manage and deliver a range of projects related to arts and culture. Our core projects are:

Burnley Literary Festival

October 4th, 5th and 6th 2019 were the dates of the fourth Burnley Literary Festival but the first one to be managed and curated by Culturapedia. We worked closely with Burnley Borough Council and Burnley Library to bring a whole host of all things words to Burnley over a fun filled weekend. Watch our great video of the event here.


Burnley Mechanics – Front Room Project

Working with a team of volunteers from the local community we programme professional arts performances with Burnley Mechanics in their Front Room space.


Digital Commissioning

We have been working with a group of young librarians and apprentices to commission a new piece of digital art for Lancashire  We wanted something that could tour and be shown to Spot On Audiences and in libraries in October and November and then be available to all on the Spot On website. Following a detailed application process Matt Wilkinson with his project ‘Hit the North’ was selected –  a decision that we are all pleased with. Details of where the piece can bee seen are available via the Spot On Lancashire website.



Spot On Lancashire

Spot On Lancashire collaborates with professional touring artists, volunteers and other partners to ensure that isolated communities in Lancashire can enjoy outstanding arts events on their doorstep. We programme two seasons of touring work a year, and work with other partners in the North on commissioning projects.

Spot On is a network coordinated by Culturapedia as part of the Cheshire Lancashire Touring Partnership. Following a very successful strategic touring bid which saw the creation of Spot On Libraries we now have library touring embedded within our delivery.



Spot On Outdoor Commission 2020

Working with the Friends of Fairhaven Lake, we are in the process of commissioning a new piece of outdoor performing arts to be toured in the Summer of 2020. The winner of the £10000 commission will be announced soon!


Spot On Outdoor Commission Burnley 2020

Spot On have secured funding from Arts Council England to commission an outdoor arts performance in 2020. This is the second commission in what we hope will be a long series of commissions over the next few years.

The plan is for the finished piece to premiere at Thompson Park, Burnley in summer 2020 with additional performances in other locations in Lancashire between July and September.
