Our work is about Tales and Transformations. 

Tales: We deal in stories, the stories of people and of places.
Transformations: We transform places, showing them in a new light and uncovering their history. We transform people by bringing them together, inspiring them to be creative, helping them to discover new skills and building confidence by feeding a sense of achievement.

Our work is participatory and involves collaboration. We began in 1985 as a community arts organisation and have worked with and on behalf of a wide range of partner organisations and artists to create tailor made experiences: festivals, events, installations, publications, performances, workshops, digital and on-line content and public art.  

Since 2014 we have focussed on creative writing projects, developing writers and publishing.

Mantle Lane Press is our publishing arm, specialising in fiction and factual/historical books.
