OUR WORK

We are an independent, values-led organisation committed to connecting artists with community. Our ambition is to create dialogue between the hyper-local and the global through positive engagement with the arts. 

PROJECTS IN DEVELOPMENT

Throughout lockdown we have been seeding research and development for community-focussed projects that will create opportunities for digital innovation, wellbeing, cohesion, recovery and creative enterprise. Follow the hashtag #TurnpikeActivations to find out more as they develop.

ACTIVATIONS

Our Activations programme connects artists with community to co-create work with positive social and environmental impact.

COMMISSIONS + EXHIBITIONS
