Create is the national development agency for collaborative arts in social and community contexts.
Their mission is to provide advice and support services to artists and arts organisations working collaboratively with communities in social and community contexts.
Create supports artists across all artforms who work collaboratively with communities in different social and community contexts, be they communities of place or communities brought together by interest.
- Create supports artists in making exceptional art with communities in the broadest sense – it can be a neighbourhood organisation; pigeon fanciers; a chess club; working fishermen, farmers or asylum seekers. (All these groups have worked with artists through the Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme managed by Create)
- Create supports artists in an open-ended approach to the artistic process and art making – as co-creators with different partners and audiences
- Create encourages ways of making art that take place primarily outside of the traditional gallery or theatre space
