Create Gloucestershire

Create Gloucestershire is an umbrella arts organisation founded in 2011 to be the leading research and development resource for the arts and cultural sector.  It is driven and resourced by its members and its purpose is to enable and support strategic and collective action at a time of unprecedented financial pressures on the arts.  Its goal is ‘making arts everyday’, a greater understanding of the central role and purpose of the arts in our lives.

Create Gloucestershire is involved with "Art: Not What I expected", the first joint marketing and communication campaign by the arts and cultural sector in the Stroud area. The campaign will challenge conventional perceptions of arts and culture and emphasize the positive contributions they make to society.
