Arts, Culture & Heritage

Support Photo of people in an art galleryStaffordshire works with a wide range arts, heritage and cultural groups across the county.

These include music groups such as community bands and community radio stations; artistic groups, art therapy groups, art centres and galleries; dance and theatre groups; and organisations working in new media and audio-visual arts.

We also work with heritage groups including civic societies, museums, churches, castles and other historic buildings and sites, many of which also have ‘friends of’ groups that in turn support their work. Others support and bring to life aspects of social history and particular industries such as the heritage of the collieries across the south of the county.

Other cultural groups include those dedicated to particular faiths or parts of the world including twinning associations that connect Staffordshire to towns and cities across the world.

We work with arts, cultural and heritage groups in all aspects of running their organisation, from setting up, to financial management, building a committee, attracting volunteers, marketing their events and winning funding from places such as the Heritage Lottery Fund.
