Now On

Our artistic programme provides a platform for participation, exchange and dialogue for artists, our partners and diverse audiences. Our exhibitions and artist led projects provide a framework for events which bring together individuals and organisations inside and outside of the arts to engage in debate and creative practice. Our work is particularly focused on issues of social inclusion and diversity and seeks to engage with global issues while being rooted in the history of our locality.

Creative Learning

In tandem with our artistic programme, 198 works with local young people aged 13-25 with multiple and complex needs through our Creative Learning training and outreach programmes. Our programme of skills development, one-to-one support, advice and mentoring provides young people with opportunities to have a voice, reconnect with learning and work towards careers in the Creative and Cultural industries.
