ROAR: Rotherham Open Arts Renaissance

Our primary focus is to support access and delivery of quality arts provision for all people of Rotherham, believing that the Arts have the power to transform peoples lives through participation, creative activity and engagement.

Involvement in the arts has positive effects on mental and physical well being, can transport the participant out of their troubles, providing valuable rest and relief. It can help people find their voice, confidence and self expression.

 Our identified ambitions and key areas of work development include working with Young People and we will be writing an engagement strategy based on our evaluation from our Dangerous Art School provision (free art activities for 14-18 years olds through summer for 3 hours a week), and from an independent  sector wide consultation report, (available on request) that identifies providing opportunity and creative routes for skills development in Rotherham as being significant drivers for the economy for the sector.

 We are also supporting the work of Cape UK, an Arts Council bridging organisation, who are looking at developing a Creative Educational Partnership, to help broker more creative offer in and beyond our schools.

 Another area of work for development is Arts In Health, and this will also cross over to our strategies for young people.

 As an infrastructure organisation, we also support and help develop our members to work with young people, including Open Minds Theatre Company who deliver the Shakespeare Festival each year.


As an infrastructure membership organisation, we support the creative and professional development of our members, including professional practice in working with families, the public, vulnerable people and young people.
