Creative, Confident Communities

Culture restoring communities

B arts, Artcity Stoke

The inequality of access to culture and to developing personal creativity that already existed across the UK has been made worse by the impact of COVID-19. Culture and creative activity can help to restore those communities most affected, inspiring them to see themselves in new ways and to change the ways others see them.

What we want to achieve

Impact goal

Everyone can access the benefits of culture and creativity

Long-term outcomes
  • Communities are strengthened and enhanced through engagement with creative work.
  • Communities are transformed through a collaborative approach to culture that involves local people alongside cultural organisations and other local players.
  • Cultural organisations with a strong track record of community engagement recover from the impacts of Covid-19 and strengthen their engagement with their communities.
