About Us

OUR ETHOS

The Civic exists to provide Barnsley and the surrounding communities with a culturally significant voice.

The aim is to present a progressive programme of festivals, exhibitions performance and events that relate to the area, social, economic and political attitudes whilst also entertaining and encouraging debate.

We are passionate about people of all ages and backgrounds having access to the best possible arts and cultural experiences on their own doorstep.

OUR ARTISTIC MISSION STATEMENT

“We hope to generate debate, push boundaries, and encourage new ways of thinking for both those familiar with the arts and those new to this arena.”

‘We will deliver a programme that is accessible, inclusive and engaging; encouraging repeat attendance and connecting with audiences through content that is relevant and meaningful’

Our core values that underpin our programme are:

1. REVOLUTIONARY

We seek to challenge the accepted and awaken audiences to possibilities

2. CONFIDENT

We will be a strong artistic voice in the region.

3. EXPERIMENTAL

We will take risks, try new things and help others to do the same.

4. INCLUSIVE

Our artistic programme is wholly accessible to all.

5. CULTURALLY SIGNIFICANT

Our programme will resonate with our audiences and make an impact on both them and our town.

We intend to position The Civic as an ‘extraordinary destination for the arts’
