The Source Arts Centre utilises the word ‘source’ as a basis for developing the work of local and regional artists and supports for them into the short to medium term.
The theme of our strategy is ‘The Point of Origin’ – the Source being a place where projects emanate from - are incubated, developed, produced and presented - whilst also retaining the ‘receiving venue’ and audience commitment functions to present incoming touring works of quality to a local audience.
To support our creators and inspire our audience.
