Moved by Art Engagement Programme

In April 2019, The Civic was successful in receiving a grant from The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation to help us develop our community engagement programme and reach new audiences. The project runs for the next three years and focuses on five identified community areas delivering a programme of events & workshops in those areas, the launch of a new volunteer development programme and further development of our resident theatre company Cross the Sky.

We want to develop and sustain longer-term relationships with education providers and community groups in the target post code areas and connect deeper into the Barnsley borough with our work.

We want communities in Barnsley to feel like high quality arts and culture is not only accessible to them, but relevant to them too. We want to enable more people in our communities to share their own stories, create their own art and feel connected to The Civic.
