Our aims are to strengthen the cultural identity of the area through exciting arts projects and events, and support the work of local creative people and arts organisations of any scale based in the area by helping them to reach a wider audience. We do this through regular email alerts, weekly newsletter and this website. We also produce projects and events that celebrate the unique character of the landscape and heritage of this area, and act as a catalyst for creative activities.
Each year, under the banner of ‘Celebrate the Waveney and Blyth’, we organise a programme of unique creative walks, performances and other arts activities to celebrate the local distinctiveness of the area. Through these, our regular Arts & Eats events and our annual conference/networking day, we connect creative organisations and individuals who care about the arts in this area.
Our full aims are set out in our constitution.
