About this cause

About our cause

Our vision is to inspire communities in Ashfield, Bolsover, Mansfield and NE Derbyshire to experience and get involved in the arts. First Art is a collective of four cultural and community organisations working within the former coalfields of NE Derbyshire and NE Nottinghamshire. We aim to bring inspiring cultural experiences within reach of everyone in Ashfield, Bolsover, Mansfield and NE Derbyshire over the next two years. We want to do this because people who live here are less involved in the arts than people living in most other parts of the country � in some areas there is no engagement at all. Evidence shows that communities with culture, creativity and imagination are stronger and more resilient than those without, and we want people in these areas to benefit from this valuable relationship between a thriving community and the arts. By 2017, dozens of artists will have been commissioned to work on more than 30 local events and projects, to which we will have welcomed more than 40,000 people. The First Art area, between the Peak District and Sherwood Forest, is a land which is hard to define. Scores of villages and small towns make up this patchwork of places � home to a population the size of Bristol. Our partnership will work with artists, theaters and community groups, museums and voluntary organisations, public bodies, businesses and the wider people to ensure that art is at the heart of positive change.
