Links & Partners

We are committed to working with arts and non-arts based partners to develop co-commissions and new projects that challenge, inspire and delight participants and audiences. As a relatively small team, our activity is enhanced and supported through a network of partners and funders.

Our key partners are listed below together with some of the networks with whom we are currently working to maximise the reach and benefit of our activity locally and nationally:

The Centre for Culture and Creativity at the University of Lincoln

The Centre for Culture and Creativity at the University of Lincoln is a ‘think and do tank’, researching and leading on cultural programmes and creativity. We work closely with the centre and our sister organisations The Barbican Creative Hub to deliver on the ambitions of the Universities cultural strategy. We work alongside other cultural assets at the University of Lincoln including Siren Radio, and The Libraries Special Collection.

Lincolnshire NPOs Network

We work closely with NPO partners in the Greater Lincolnshire, exclusively on sector development to nurture a community of artists and creatives. Through our collective efforts we host events, meetings, and collaborate on joint funding bids, lobbying government with a strategic focus on themes including: commissioning and presentation, volunteering, children and young people and rurality.
