Learning and Participation

GemArts delivers high quality arts projects with people of all ages and backgrounds. Our workshops enable people to develop new skills and interests, while working alongside professional artists to extend the experience of world music, dance, drama and visual arts.

GemArts’ commitment to making diverse arts accessible to all communities is illustrated in the variety of events, concerts and workshops on offer each year. By working with regional, national and international artists of the highest calibre, we give people the opportunity to learn new skills, cultivate their ambitions and explore cross cultural art forms. Complementing the performance and event programme with a varied learning and participatory programme ensures we really do offer arts experiences for everyone.
