High Peak Community Arts

High Peak Community Arts provides opportunities for people to participate in high quality creative arts projects, enhancing their quality of life through self-expression. High Peak focus on those who have least access to arts and culture, benefiting some of the most hard to reach and isolated individuals and groups in the community. Their participants include those affected by disability, lack of resources or encouragement, rural isolation and other personal or social circumstances.

Their three main strands of activity are youth arts, arts and well-being, and responding to community needs in local project activity.

Open Day fun on 17th May 2014

We've had a lovely day here at High Lea Hall - the sun shone for us and lots of families and individual people have called in to chat, make some art and watch our films. Most popular films of the day were our animations; Space to Breathe from Project eARTh and The Dark Devil from the Glossopdale Film Cuts Club.
