We believe that the arts should be for ALL. Your ability to enjoy the arts is not controlled by how much money you have, how old or young you are, whether you went to University, whether you have a disability, or find yourself disabled by society, or anything else that may or may not define you; so why should your access to it be controlled by these things, or any of these determine your chance of a career in our creative and cultural industries.
That is why Live Art Local CIC create projects that take art out of traditional settings (theatres, museums, galleries etc) and position them where they can be experienced by all for little or no cost. Our aim, to make the arts accessible to all!
We create new and dynamic work, support the artistic development of artists through our affiliate artist programme and events such as the For Love And Money Conference & produce high-quality publications and happenings that are aimed at increasing awareness of, and participation in arts and culture in the south, allowing artists to grow and develop their craft through multiple opportunities to exhibit and perform their work.
A relatively young organisation, we have gone from strength to strength over the last four years. Moving from an idea in the mind of our founder to a growing organisation with a Board of Directors, a micro gallery/arts space and a new pop up studios and experimental space opening soon.
