We have been busy behind the scenes and proudly announce the launch of our new-look website! Showcasing our Creative Coast - we present the best arts and cultural experiences found in our region, such as events, cultural trails and creative places. 

Our Creative Community section is aimed at our creative industry practitioners and includes the latest news, grant and opportunities across the arts sector. You will also find lots of useful resources to help you for research, business and marketing, funding and tourism & events management. 

At this stage our Artists & Networks directory is under review as we work on updating our database. However, you can find venues and institutions which are listed in our Cultural Trails.
