About Mantle Arts

Mantle Arts is a community arts organisation based in Coalville, Leicestershire.

Our work is all about Tales and Transformations.

Tales are 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 discover new skills and interests, and enabling them to develop a sense of achievement and confidence.

We do all this by creating tailor made experiences: festivals, events, installations, publications, performances, workshops, digital and on-line content, and public art. Our work is participatory and involves collaboration between people and artists.

We work with and on behalf of a wide range of partner organisations to achieve these aims.

Since 2014 we have developed a specialism in creative writing projects, writer development and publishing.

Mantle Lane Press is our publishing arm which specialises in fiction and factual/historical books, usually with a UK Midlands connection.
