Mid Pennine Arts
Mid Pennine Arts brings art, people and places together to transform perceptions and change lives.
Mid Pennine Arts is a commissioning agency, working through collaboration to create high quality art in response to the rich and diverse contexts of North West England. Based in the Pennines, we have a long and powerful track record, working with artists to rise to the exciting challenges posed by dramatic and often beautiful rural and post-industrial landscapes, hand in hand with their diverse and resilient communities.
We believe in the transformative power of contemporary art. We work in some of the poorest communities in the UK, but we deliver ambitious, challenging work that has won national and international awards and achieves profound and lasting social and economic outcomes.
Our local context is all important, informing new work that brings new life and new audiences to magical heritage sites and struggling high streets alike. From ancient manors to obsolete railways, from derelict mills to windswept moorland, Mid Pennine Arts applies that transformative power to the living heritage of our region, giving national and international artists the opportunity to work within one of the most exciting contexts in Europe.
