Lancaster Arts: Purpose

Lancaster Arts purpose is to cultivate excellence in and engagement across the performing and visual arts. We support talent through practice-based initiatives and provide audiences and our local communities with opportunities to participate in and engage with the contemporary and inspiring - making their own contributions to cultural experimentation.

Linked to Lancaster University's knowledge rich environment Lancaster Arts presentation and preservation of the contemporary arts and opportunities for artists, arts professionals and arts research are valued in regional, national and increasingly international contexts. We are also proud of our lead role in the arts ecology of North West England.
