To tackle inequalities in Scotland through creative engagement. We envisage a Scotland where everybody believes in the power of creativity to transform lives.
To be recognised as Scotland’s leading community arts charity.
Who we are
Established in 1994, Impact Arts is a forward-thinking community arts organisation which uses the arts and creativity to enable and empower social change.
We consider the arts as a positive tool for change – helping people to:
- Build confidence and attain new skills
- Get back into work or education
- Source work in the creative arts
- Enjoy better health or simply improve quality of life
From dance to digital, our door is always open.
We work collaboratively with children, young people, older people and communities to achieve our aims. We work predominantly, but not exclusively, with vulnerable groups.
Impact Arts places innovation, enterprise and creativity alongside outstanding delivery, sound management and a strong ethos of partnership to tackle society’s big issues.
Our talented in-house and freelance artists in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Ayrshire and beyond, ensure that our artistic programmes, exhibitions, performances and events are of the highest quality. We exist to inspire creativity in people and regenerate our communities through a deep, rewarding relationship with the arts. #artchangeslives
The team at Impact Arts work hard to secure over £1.5m of funding per year to provide life changing creative experiences for more than 5000 people.
