Arts Connection

Arts Connection is a voluntary network of seven established arts organisations in Renfrewshire; Create, Erskine Arts, Outspoken Arts, PACE, Paisley Opera, Right2Dance and Star Project. Membership also includes representation from OneRen.

Arts Connection came together as organisations in receipt of Cultural Organisation Development Funds from Future Paisley to explore how they can work together to raise the cultural ambition of Renfrewshire.

Arts Connection work together to:

  • Learn more about each other and the shared context in which we operate
  • Share our resources better
  • Measure and better demonstrate our collective value for artists and the sector locally
  • Excite and engage audiences and participants in our work

The areas Arts Connection aim to champion and improve are:

  • Cultural leadership, quality and excellence in Renfrewshire
  • Putting Renfrewshire on the map for culture and inclusion
  • Cultural growth, employment and artistic development
  • Collectively promoting what happens in Renfrewshire to attract broader and increased audiences and participation
  • Being ambitious for Renfrewshire - that we can regenerate and reform and bring the community and culture together
