People Around Here has been delivering community arts initiatives in Cardiff and beyond since July 2006. We use the arts as a vehicle to change lives: to boost confidence, encourage positive community relationships, enable people to learn new skills, and to inspire them to work together to create something they can be proud of. We engage with all ages from primary school children to older people, actively promoting intergenerational community cohesion. We have built a reputation for delivering effective, collaborative community arts projects, professional products and measurable outcomes. We have been described as Creative, Visionary, Flexible, Professional, Innovative, Respected, Outcomes-based and Community-focused.
Our Mission Statement is:
