Where are we starting from?

North Somerset has no dedicated cultural development strategy or dedicated partnership and only limited access to cultural venues and organisations. In this sense we are starting from a very low base.

It does, however, have strong areas of activity which we can build on, including:

  • Strong work on developing creativity across early years, the primary and secondary curriculum
  • Successful delivery of new qualifications such as the Creative and Media Diploma
  • Arts practitioners who live but do not work in North Somerset 
  • Small-scale development work within universal and targeted services, for example with young people and looked after children
