Nottingham C.A.N is a network of artists, our mission is simple, we are an organisation dedicated to the exploration of how the arts can be best facilitated and developed towards positively impacting local communities. Using the arts as the focus we aspire to socially, creatively, and educationally enrich local communities, supporting, nurturing, and facilitate active community engagement between the local community and Artist. We achieve this through two main focuses; The first being direct artist-led research, consulting, and engaging within local communities with a social, political, and environmental focus. The second being the and the training, development, and support of aspiring and already practicing community artists. By focusing on these two areas we cultivate growth of well-informed community arts workshops, sessions, and events, that have a direct impact and explore wider community issues through the arts.
