Seventeen: The Creative Hub

The Seventeen commissions aim to nurture and invest in local artistic talent, and promote high quality artistic activity to a wider local, national and international audience.
The Seventeen commissions are open to emerging or established individual artists, organisation or partnership of artists across any art-form. This can be from any creative discipline; i.e. visual, dance, drama, performance, written word, sound or music artists.
Artists have now been appointed and the commissions will be showcased in Seventeen over the next 12 months.

- Provide news of opportunities for artists, organisations and volunteers.
- A workshop space where artists and arts organisations can undertake projects or deliver classes
