About this cause

About our cause

We use participatory arts and involve communities and people in creation of their own piece of work. Our work is in schools, hospitals, community centres and churches. Our team have specialties in visual arts, drama and dance.
We have been in operation since 1985 and are based in an area of the UK which has been listed as having some of the most deprived areas.
We have a high South Asian population and there has been problems with community cohesion in the area, which is one of the issues we hope to address by bring people together in art.
We also work in partnership with other organiisations in the area including Wesley Hall, Calderstones NHS Trust, Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council, Lancashire NHS, and others.
In the past we have received funding from the Arts Council, this has now ended and we are looking for new ways to continue our work.
We have several projects that require funding: working with marginlised groups in the local area, providing activities and social networks for older people and those suffering with anxiety and depression and also working with the South Asian culture to engage with and develop artists.
