"Dedicated to improving lives and communities through arts and culture"

Taking Part

We believe that the arts are for everyone and should be at the heart of all our lives ... that culture is a living thing, constantly being renewed and created ... that there should be access and opportunity for everyone.  It's about getting involved!  Be Part of Art!

Skills for Life

Arts participation is a great way of gaining skills.  Our work aims to support both professional artistic development and the wider skills and experience that can come of artistic engagement, participation and practice.  


Social Impact

Our vision is that Culture and Creativity build communities.  Our mission is to positively transform individuals, communities and the spaces they share through community-based, high quality arts engagement and participation.

Recruiting New Trustees and a new Chair

We continue to seek to develop our board of Trustees. As well as looking for a new Chair, to provide ongoing leadership for the charity, we are looking to more generally add to the skills and experience that is guiding the charity, particularly to find someone with a financial background to better inform our financial decision-making.  More details and an application pack are available through the 'Get Involved' page or by clicking HERE.

You can hear one of our Trustees, Karl Jermy, talking about being a Trustee of NORCA & Sistema in Norwich on our new podcast HERE.
