MarketPlace embraces the unusual and unique rural landscapes of Fenland region of Cambridgeshire and the Forest Heath area of West Suffolk.

We work with communities giving them an equal role at the heart of decision making about the type of arts events they want to see in the places where they live.

As an ‘action research’ project, everything we do is about questioning, reflecting and analysing how the arts are being used, experienced and what effect they have in our region.

Creative People and Places is about more people taking the lead in shaping, creating and taking part in arts and culture experiences in the places where they live. There are 33 projects across England, each located in a place where people are least likely to engage with arts and culture. The Creative People and Places programme, initiated and funded by Arts Council England through the National Lottery.

We support the Disability Arts Alliance, We Shall Not Be Removed.

We are taking a positive anti-racist stance and you can read our statement here.
