About Us

Stats & Facts

Find out the breadth, reach and impact of our work.

Our mission is to break down barriers to accessing creativity. We work with communities where it’s hard to get involved in the arts. We work with people who are overlooked by the arts sector because of who they are or where they live. We work with artists – whether professional or not – who might otherwise miss out on opportunities.

To make sure we’re reaching the right people, we use statistics to keep track of our programme’s breadth, reach and impact. This page contains a selection of those statistics. Elsewhere on the site, you’ll find the stories behind the numbers. Hopefully this gives you a quick overview of the work we do.
