Arts Development

Arts Development aims to bring out the capabilities and possibilities of the arts in a range on contexts. These include health, communities, education and regeneration. We work with a range of partners to develop activities that will enhance the lives of residents and the experience of visitors.

We provide advice to artists, organisations and community groups. This can be about how to develop a project, reach an audience, get some funding and set up a group or meeting with the right people. We aim to encourage creativity and opportunity for all Erewash’s communities to participate.
