Great Yarmouth is a cultural destination whose people are proudly engaged in creative communities.
Inclusion: We will work to remove barriers for engagement, and be conscious of our own biases and cultural understandings to ensure all communities feel welcomed and comfortable engaging with us. We will create space where different perspectives are valued.
Active research: This is a participatory programme requiring active and ongoing learning which we will freely share and respond to.
Art and culture where people are: Many of our target audience are economically challenged and the burden of travelling to an arts experience creates a barrier for many. We will regularly make art happen where people are.
All art, culture, and creativity is valid: We are led by the belief that there is no ‘correct’ or ‘valid’ type of arts and cultural experience. We are guided by the principle that if art and cultural experiences ‘do something to you’, they have value.
We are very fortunate to have worked in partnership with many other brilliant organisations on projects, get in touch here if you have a project that you would be interested in collaborating on.
