Creative People and Places Network

Creative People and Places is about more people choosing, creating and taking part in brilliant art experiences in the places where they live.

Funded by Arts Council England, there are now 21 independent Creative People and Places projects in areas where people have fewer opportunities to get involved with the arts.

The projects work with a diverse range of partners including a rugby club, haulage firm and housing association, as well as artists and arts organisations.
