WHAT DO WE DO FOR OUR MEMBERS?
Our aim is to enrich people’s lives through the arts. We work with our members – artists, arts organisations and the public – to provide strategic direction for the creative and performing arts throughout Derbyshire, enabling collaborative working for arts development, and to encourage people to take part in the arts.
We deliver great projects for our Derbyshire participants. In the last year alone these have included Matinee, A Necklace of Stars, DDance, LoveLit, Writing Ambitions, and Social Prescribing, and we also provide support to Derbyshire Film and Live and Local.
We understand the challenges of running a creative practice or event and provide information and advice on a variety of topics, including Festivity. We work in partnership with the Culture Health and Wellbeing Alliance to deliver the Arts, Health and Wellbeing Network.
All this is delivered alongside our directory of artists, arts organisations, venues and events which is available to everyone, as we foster a welcoming and inclusive community across the Derbyshire arts sector.
