You can get involved in the arts by joining groups that offer activities such as drama, dancing, singing, crafting or painting.

If you are interested in joining an arts group, speak to staff at your local library.

Public art

We have a variety of public art across the region that enhances the character and vibrancy of each local neighbourhood. This engages local residents and provides a sense of community in new building developments.

We aim to provide clear procurement and implementation procedures for public art planning.

Our public art advice note provides guidance for developers on our public art policy and practice.

All public art projects should meet our key criteria for quality, accessibility and sustainability.


Our Member Awarded Funding scheme can help support a local arts event or activity.

Arts Council England may have funding for larger arts projects if your project meets their criteria.
