Artcore is a visual arts charity with a group of professional artists working within communities locally, nationally and internationally.

We endeavour to operate as a cultural hub; fuelling active engagement for a diverse range of communities in Derby, East Midlands and beyond.Artcore’s long-term objective is to use arts and crafts as a vehicle to strengthen community cohesion, educate, raise awareness and provide a platform for development.

Through our work we are committed to bringing change into the lives of people of all ages, abilities, cultural and ethnic backgrounds through creative activities.

Our focus is the provision of a contemporary, innovative and quality service through the four core areas: ‘art in education and learning’, ‘art in modern culture’, ‘art in health and well-being’, and ‘art in the community’.We support participants as they develop their skills in a range of visual art mediums and techniques. As well as developing transferable skills such as time keeping, organisation, planning and communication.

Artcore also provides a platform to implement the learning through volunteering and work experience opportunities in our different projects. Engaging in creative and meaningful activities with Artcore, people have an opportunity to share learning, strengthen relationships with peers, boost confidence, encourage use of imagination and creativity, enhance knowledge and broaden career prospects.

Arts activities also act as an alternative learning tool, breaking down any learning, academic or social barriers, providing learning and education strands that are accessible to all.
