The Singing Ringing Tree, Panopticons by Mid Pennine Arts

Arts Lancashire exists to support and promote the work of its members, offering a strategic voice for professional arts and culture in the county. 

We support quality arts provision and support new artistic ambition.

We encourage partnership working for the benefit members, local communities and visitors to the county. We believe an independent professional arts sector is vital to a vibrant, confident and successful Lancashire.

We regularly connect with observers from other strategic cultural partners such as Arts Council England, Lancashire County Council and Marketing Lancashire.
