Discover the latest MarketPlace projects – all co-created with community groups and artists sharing their skills and experiences.

If you are a community group and have an idea you’d like to get off the ground, please get in touch. We can’t promise to always produce a project but we can develop the ideas with you.

We’re always open to a “Creative Conversation”
