This vision sees us working more closely with our local communities whilst expanding our creative profile nationally.

We consider diversity a strength and are keen to make our organisation’s Board, staffing and programming more representative of the different backgrounds and experiences that make up our communities. We acknowledge the multiple barriers that many communities face, and we work to remove these in our programmes and organisation.
