Organisation: Attenborough Arts Centre

Region: East Midlands

Artform: Cross Artform

Welcoming: All Disabilities : Inclusive/Integrated

Opportunity Summary:

Attenborough Arts Centre invites anyone in the community to engage with the arts. Our current arts programme pilots new approaches to performance and creative learning, supporting local and national artists to take risks and try new ideas, especially those with emerging careers and disabled artists. We encourage partnerships to develop artists cross-over and collaboration with different art forms. We are looking to develop further work, aiming to foster debate with artists, students, academics and wider audiences. Our new exhibitions programme focuses on art that is relevant, engaging and accessible, critical and progressive. Our exhibitions will have a social motivation exploring the changing role of contemporary art, its local and global relevance; supporting practical, aesthetic, and poetic new approaches to our society, our environment and our place within the two. Please see website for further information about current and upcoming opportunities.
