Nottingham's Community Artist Network

Nottingham C.A.N is a network of artists, dedicated to exploring and developing how the arts can have positive impact and enrich our local communities…

A Little About Our Mission...

Our mission is simple. We are an organisation dedicated to the exploration of how the arts can be best facilitated and developed towards positively impacting local communities.

Using the arts as focus we aspire to socially, creatively and educationally enrich local communities, supporting, nurturing and facilitate active community engagement between the local community and Artist.

We achieve this through two main focuses

  • The first being direct artist-led research, consultating and engaging within local communities with a social, political and environmental focus.
  • The second being the and the training, developing and support of aspiring and already practicing community artists.

By focusing on these two areas we cultivate a growth of well-informed community arts workshops, sessions and events, that have direct impact and explore wider community issues through the arts.
