Charnwood Arts
has reached the grandold age of 30
One of our discoveries, from one of the manyconversations which have taken place about the historyof the organisation in the last year, is the extent of thepublic support that the idea of Charnwood Arts had fromits inception. This organisation is a remarkable outcomeof citizen action. Hundreds of people turned up for thefirst public meetings of the organisation and even now30 years later many hundreds of people are stillinvolved in developing, supporting and delivering ourvaried programme. It is a fantastic example of peopleled capacity building for a local community which nowhas influences and project links which extend far andwide. Charnwood Arts is, remarkably, within the top10% of local employers by size of workforce. Last yearwe employed sixteen people directly and issued over140 freelance or performance contracts - mostly toartists and across a wide range of disciplines. Not justan arts organisation but also creating interesting andvaried work for local people.The organization has enjoyed long running and highlysupportive partnerships with Charnwood BoroughCouncil, Arts Council England, East Midlands,Leicestershire County Council and LoughboroughUniversity. In many ways it is the engagement of theseorganisations which has facilitated so much of whatwe have been able to achieve over the years and hascreated one of the most well known participatory artsorganisations in the UK. Their arms length approachover the years has been a model of good practice.All organisations are ultimately based on the efforts ofthe people who work for them, the volunteers, staff,trustees and of course in our case, the artists. It is nottheir work in isolation which achieves this but also theremarkable creative and organisational relationshipsthat we have and build up with each other that achievesresults. The arts - in all their forms and approaches,outside of the purely classical, involve change and risk.Without people prepared to innovate, take risk and bebrave enough to constantly meet new challenges wewould not be the creative organisation we are.Charnwood Arts is at a watershed. It is an organisationwith many wonderful achievements, known positivelyto the world outside. However, there are even moreremarkable achievements in terms of the impactCharnwood Arts has had on individual lives.The organisation has such great potential, forCharnwood, Leicestershire and for the East Midlands asa whole. Whether we can be successful in extending theservice we give to the people of Charnwood andwhether we can achieve and sustain the practicalsupport and recognition we require to achieve thispotential is ever an open question. It is a question whichdemands a strategic answer and it’s a question whichrequires the full and undivided attention of all our keypartners if we are to proceed now to the best of ourability.
We sincerely hope that together we canachieve something that will, in its own way,create something as ground breaking andspecial as the last thirty years have been.We hope this publication will share more ofthe work and give a new perspective on thiswonderful organization and network ofcollaboration which has been built up over thelast three decades.
We hope you will discover things about us that you didn’t know before.
Your interest and support is welcomed and vital in enablingthis innovative flagship participatory arts organizationto continue to flourish.
