Strategic partnerships are central to our working practice and we have worked extensively with North Yorkshire County Council, Lancashire County Council, district councils, national parks, heritage organisations, higher education establishments and with other arts organisations both within the UK and internationally.

Our international work has led to the development of particularly strong links with rurally based partners in Finland and Sweden and we continue to build on these collaborations to benefit both individual artists and the wider sector.

We have a strong track record in developing inspirational international opportunities for artists through residencies, joint projects, seminars and exhibitions.


Recent projects include:

Show Me Your Craft
We worked with Konsthantverkscentrum (KHVC) again to take the work of three North Yorkshire based artists who work in textiles to Sweden in June 17. Angela Chalmers, Barbara Greene and Serena Partridge’s work will feature alongside work by Swedish artists.
