GemArts know the difference the arts can make to the lives of individuals and communities. Each year we work tirelessly to promote and celebrate exciting culturally diverse art forms, and projects offering real benefit by:

Programming over 35 high profile events and exhibitions
Attracting over 81,000 audience members from all backgrounds
Working with hundreds of artists across art forms
Engaging thousands of local participants in high quality projects and workshops

Our work creates opportunities for local communities, and GemArt is recognised as a leader in this area. As a charity we rely on raising funds from a range of sources. As a leading arts organisation we work in partnership with businesses, brands and other organisations, using our expertise to deliver life enhancing community projects, presenting exceptional high profile events, offering valuable diversity training and team building opportunities. We regularly engage with a loyal core audience, but also introduce work to those who have little or no experience of the arts.

GemArts offer businesses the opportunity to help achieve our mission, while promoting shared priorities and meet business needs.
