Situation

Bridport Arts Centre has offered creative opportunities to the local community to for many years. The scale and scope of interest and need has increased in recent years, however we don’t have the resources to meet that need. There are also many people in Bridport who do not access available opportunities due to multiple barriers, and who need proactive outreach, which is also beyond our capacity. We want to ensure that the benefits of a rich and diverse arts offer are available to all.

Solution

Our new Learning & Outreach plan was developed to respond to the needs of our community. The plan builds on recent work and will develop key partnerships with schools, community groups and regional partners to offer relevant and innovative creative projects. These include a junior and senior youth theatre, work with creative writing and a follow up to our very successful community radio project. We have a focus on children and young people but will work across all ages and backgrounds.
