Create Gloucestershire (CG) is made up of a 600+ strong, and growing, network from across the arts and cultural sector; together with a range of strategic partners from across different sectors we think, research, test and share ideas to encourage arts to become “everyday” in Gloucestershire

Our long-term goals are articulated in a Manifesto, which you can view here. It is the first arts development strategy in Gloucestershire led by and for practitioners.

CG is led by a board and team whose details are available below.

CG connects artists, organisations, funders and audiences/participants together in new ways. We encourage dialogue and incubate the ideas that emerge. We then look to share learning and maximise return on investment to drive a new cycle of innovation.  

This collaborative cycle has forged new trust and respect across the sector and spawned a range of ambitious projects and approaches. We have collectively secured funding of approximately £950,000.
