GemArts is a dynamic arts development organisation – we profile and programme new and exciting culturally diverse arts, by creating and developing high quality concerts, events, festivals, workshops and commissions with regional, national and international artists across all art forms.
GemArts delivers an ambitious and culturally eclectic programme of work, and constantly strives to produce work of the highest artistic quality, including providing a platform for artists of international significance, from the UK and abroad, to present their work to audiences. The organisation is committed to excellence in participatory arts practice, particularly supporting artists working in the diversity sector, and specialises in delivering high quality arts based projects with schools and community groups across all age ranges, to provide an educational and enjoyable learning experience and to promote a greater understanding of people and their respective cultures.
Over the course of a year GemArts:
