As Herefordshire's Centre for the Arts we wish to develop our community arts work in rural, deprived and isolated areas of the county. We already deliver activities to a range of groups but wish to focus on younger, older and disadvantaged communities. This work should be long term and sustainable.

Herefordshire is one of the UK's largest rural counties with associated problems eg: lack of transport, pockets of isolation and deprivation & lack of access to facilities and services. Vulnerable groups like older and younger people suffer most from deprivation, older people forming a high percentage of the local population. Both groups are provent to benefit from engagement with accessible arts. However, there is a need for affordable arts activities delivered on people's doorsteps.
The Courtyard is Herefordshire's Arts Centre serving the whole of the local community. We have a strong education department with a growing outreach arm. We wish to develop further our community work with young and old people, offering a range of arts projects in a sustainable way to meet proven needs. We have access to skilled personnel and local networks but lack the resources to build on our work. We wish to deliver a range of projects in all types of arts, reaching many community groups
