Connecting Creativity and Community

Community Arts Partnership takes the lead in the promotion, development and delivery of community arts practice in Northern Ireland. We are an independent advocate for community arts and offer the widest possible range of assistance and opportunity to get creative and engage in community-based arts activity.

Our mission is to take the lead in the promotion, development and delivery of community arts practice, to affect positive change.

Our vision is to see the emergence of a just, inclusive, peaceful and creative society, where difference is welcomed and participation is valued.

We have a two-fold approach to arts development: firstly, supporting access and participation by seeking to affect policy through advocacy and leadership and secondly, promoting authorship and ownership through the active engagement in projects and programmes.
