Art of Libraries - a first space to create, imagine and play?

As we come near to the end of Art of Libraries, a 3 year innovative test project led by Create Gloucestershire with 6 early adopter libraries, libraries have used this opportunity to offer all kinds of creative activity such as live theatre, animation, stone carving, circus and story walks for children, families and young people. 

By working collaboratively with artists, community organisations, schools, and other stakeholders across Gloucestershire, we have been able to bring new ideas, confidence and energy to the library network, develop creative and leadership skills of children and young people and build new working relationships between libraries, arts venues, festivals and theatre companies to sustain the offer when the pilot funding comes to an end. 

Interested in finding out what we have learnt along the way? A limited number of places are available to attend our March event - more info here. Please reserve in advance by emailing:
