Mid Pennine Arts

 

Mid Pennine Arts brings art, people and places together.

 

MPA is the commissioning agency based in Pennine Lancashire and developing projects across Lancashire and beyond. We commission high quality creative work through a variety of collaborations and in response to the distinctive contexts of our natural, built and social environments. Our projects examine what is unique about our area, our heritage and our communities. We aim to originate exciting creative work that has lasting impact for participants, audiences and our project partners.

 

Our local context is all important, informing new work that brings new life and new audiences to magical heritage sites and struggling high streets alike. From ancient manors to obsolete railways, from derelict mills to windswept moorland, Mid Pennine Arts applies that transformative power to the living heritage of our region, giving national and international artists the opportunity to work within one of the most exciting contexts in Europe.

 

With five decades of commissioning experience, MPA’s longevity is testament to the soundness of our vision and the integrity of a philosophy rooted in the belief that art can play a major role in developing, nurturing and completing sustainable communities.
