Be Creative

Our mission is for everyone to be able to explore their creativity and experience the joy the arts can bring because we know that taking part in creative activities has transformative effects on people and places.

The arts are crucial to our wellbeing at this time and our learning and engagement projects change and inspire the lives of over 22,000 people in Brighton & Hove and beyond each year. 

We are constantly looking for new ways to embrace all corners of the community, open the arts to everyone and be a place where everyone can grow their creativity and develop skills for life. By supporting us and our projects that enrich lives with creativity, you will be making significant positive change to the lives of thousands. Find out more about the ways you can support us here
