Creative, Confident Communities

Hijinx Theatre

We want to strengthen the bonds in communities, helping local people to build vibrant, confident places where they can fulfil their creative, human, and economic potential.

Places where the local economy works better for the people who live there, where there is equality of access to arts and culture, and where communities are at the heart of change.

Working with others, we will contribute to three key impact goals by 2030:

  • Everyone can access the benefits of culture and creativity.
  • Communities take an active role in decisions that affect them.
  • Local economies work better for the people who live there.

Our priorities

We have four priorities through which we believe we can best contribute to these goals over the next five years.
