Arts & Culture

These groups work to expand the reach of art, music, theatre and other culture within the community.

Wellbeing and social inclusion are a key part of this, as is the opportunity to share stories, experiences and ideas in accessible and engaging formats.

Many charitable arts and culture organisations make a big effort to involve communities who may otherwise miss out.
