Stanley Arts Development Surgeries

Are you an individual artist or a company with a great creative idea, but you need some advice or support to help make it happen? Why not come in for a half hour chat with a member of the Stanley Arts team? We love to nurture artistic work, whether or not it is part of the Stanley Arts programme.

You could be a dance company, a musician, a community artist, or a theatre maker. You might want fundraising, marketing or production advice. Whatever you are looking for, we will try to help if we can.

Each month a different member of the team, with a different specialism, will be available to chat. The sessions are free, however it’s on a first come first served basis each month.
