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.

Covid-19 response 

In this period of uncertainty we have, sadly, taken the decision to suspend the delivery of the Sistema in Norwich orchestral programme as of Wednesday 18th March 2020, and until further notice.

We are sorry to have to do this, but following recent advice from the Government, we feel that the safety of the children, staff and parents is paramount, and that we should support efforts to try to limit the spread of the virus.

New Trustee

We are really pleased to welcome our newest Trustee, Beryl Blower, to the board.  Beryl was a fantastic support in her year as Sheriff of Norwich, when we were the Lord Mayor's charity and she helped she us to raise such a great amount in that year.  We really look forward to working with her again.
