County Arts Service


About us

About us

We partner with a range of arts and non-arts organisations. By doing this we have created a countywide arts infrastructure to raise the profile of the arts.

A community based approach ensures beneficial outcomes for all. Focused support in hard to reach areas helps us create a thriving cultural economy in the region.

Our projects

The County Arts service develops and delivers a range of arts programmes.
