We provide strategic development for artists and community arts in Leicester, deliver a community arts programme, and provide arts advice services.
Creative Leicestershire supports contemporary artists and creative businesses to work effectively across a range of economic and social agendas in partnership with other agencies and aim to increase investment, employment and improve access to employment with the arts sector in Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland. The programme is funded and supported by local authorities in the area, including Leicester.
