Norwich Arts Stream was established in 2018. The Arts Stream is managed by a steering group made up of local artists and representatives from organisations and groups including The Common Lot, Norwich Arts Centre, Norwich Theatre, The Norfolk Library Services, UEA and The Friend Ship.
All members share a passionate belief that art has the power to inspire positive social change, and play a key role in creating a culture of welcome.
The group members meet every two months at Franks Bar in Norwich. If you would find out more about the Arts Stream and how to get involved please email: [email protected]

Arts Auction

The Arts Stream ran their first collaborative event- an Arts Auction- on 19th March 2021. An evening of frenetic bidding and fabulous entertainment! Over 60 lots were donated by local artists to raise money to support local refugees and asylum seekers. Artists include Colin Self, Antony Gormley, Ileana Hunter, Andy Jarrett and many more! Over £10k was raised for local sanctuary focused groups and the arts stream.
