ARTS PARTICIPATION & ENGAGEMENT

"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.

Make some noise!

NORCA & Sistema in Norwich has been awarded funding from the Arts Council’s Let’s Create Jubilee Fund, to create a new carnival music group for children and young people.  We will be launching a new, weekly youth samba band (ages 10+), based at our headquarters on Colegate, which will meet on Saturday afternoons.  For more details, click HERE.

Work has begun!

As you will know if you've seen our blog, we are preparing for the next exciting stage in the life of Sistema in Norwich. Post-Pandemic, and since our school-based programme has ended, we are looking forward to welcoming our students back to face-to-face delivery in our new permanent base on Colegate. This week, work begins on assembling the acoustic pods we are installing to turn our first floor into a first-rate musical education facility.

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.
