Arts development

We support a wide range of arts opportunities for local people of all ages, in all sorts of areas, including writing, dance, visual arts, drama, music, participatory arts, and crafts. 


Arts Derbyshireis the forum for joint working on arts development between arts organisations and local authorities in Derbyshire, to drive the development of arts across the county.

Our many projects include the Arts Derbyshire website, creative industries development, arts and health work, dance development, Live and Local and Festivity.

For more information about any of these see the projects section of Arts Derbyshire.

Arts Derbyshire is the hub for arts activities and news across Derbyshire and Derby city, including a directory of Derbyshire artists and arts organisations, what's on and artist newsletters, opportunities, activities, festivals, links, advice and resources.
