We are an interdisciplinary organisation in Pendle, Lancashire.

We work between arts practice, community, social action and ecology.

Our vision is for art to be part of everyday life; for our art to be an art of action; for our art to contribute to society as a whole; for our art to challenge current thinking about environment, people, place and culture.

We are working collaboratively to bring about social and environmental change in Pendle, addressing inequalities, lack of provision and the need to support creative development and sustainable futures.

Read the latest reflections, ideas and research from people involved at different stages in the process.

How We Work

 

Our embedded practice takes place in everyday life. It begins by existing in the community, having conversations that turn into bigger ideas, which we develop with the people that voiced them.

 

This is a slow and open ended process. We are excited to see how dialogue with artists, a non-hierarchical ethos and “Yes and…” thinking can positively shape what comes next in Pendle.
