Our Work

Future Arts Centres has delivered a number of major projects in recent years, as well as ongoing advocacy campaigns and annual meetings for its members.


We were delighted to work with the World Wildlife Fund, Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and the National Trust to support the People’s Plan for Nature – the biggest ever conversation about the future of nature in the UK.

Here and Now

Here and Now is a national and local celebration of culture within communities. 40 new projects will take place in and around 40 arts centres across the country throughout 2020, led by artists and co-created with local people.


Future Arts Centres’ Global-Vision project set out to explore how arts centres could work internationally, to find ways of working that retained our connections to our local communities whilst at the same time, benefited from international ideas, resources and networks.

Advocacy and communication

Championing the role of arts centres in the wider social and cultural landscape is a key priority for Future Arts Centres.
