Organisation

Fleet Arts is a community arts charity delivering visual arts and music projects.  Our aim is to offer high-quality, accessible creative arts experiences. We have worked for more than 25 years in partnership with local groups and agencies throughout Derbyshire and Derby City to deliver a range of engaging and exciting projects. 

What we offer:

Workshops:
An ever-changing programme of one-off creative workshops tailored to suit specific ages and interests, including our ever popular family drop-ins and children’s holiday workshops.

Projects:
Visual Art – we deliver a wide variety of bespoke participatory arts projects working with all ages and abilities in diverse mediums, both traditional and contemporary.  These range from five week to five year projects with various partners.

Music – ‘Turn it Up’ is the music development branch of Fleet Arts, working mainly with young people to support them in exploring, creating and performing a wide cross-section of music.

Performing Arts – movement, spoken word and drama are all part of the eclectic mix of art forms we aim to explore and develop within projects and events.

Events:
A range of events are hosted by Fleet Arts in both our own venue and elsewhere.  These include health & well-being experiences, network opportunities, creative happenings, installations and performances.

Artist development:
We have an open-plan studio space for several artists and a rolling ‘artist in residence’ programme for visiting artists to develop work linked to the surrounding area.

Venue:
An accessible venue with a great view, plenty of parking and just a five minute walk from the centre of town.  We have a spacious hall, panoramic meeting room and a fully equipped music rehearsal room all for hire at competitive rates.
