Live Art Local was formed in 2014 and exists to realise two mutually inclusive central aims:one, to support creative people, places and conversations in the region, and two,to initiate positive social change and increasing wellbeing through the arts and creativity.

We aspire to be an active voice, helping to shape the cultural landscape along the south coast and beyond. Building on our work over the last three years, the establishment of Sticks Contemporary, and FLAM 2018, we hope to develop our relationships with established and grassroots arts organisations and individual artists by looking outwards to other places whilst building the reputation and creative and social capital of the community in Gosport and the wider area.
