Glenkens Community & Arts Trust

The Arts, Culture and Heritage Manager has overall responsibility for achieving the strategic and intermediate outcomes for our arts, cultural and heritage activity and events programme.

Aims of the Arts, Culture and Heritage Programme
Glenkens Community and Arts Trust strives for healthy, active, creative, connected and inclusive communities in which people of all ages can live, work and grow.
To help make this future a reality, we work with others to enrich the lives of people in our communities, by providing inclusive social, artistic and creative activities, experiences and opportunities for progression.
Contributing to this organisational vision and mission, the overall strategic aim of the Arts, Culture and Heritage Programme is for CatStrand to continue to be a premiere venue for touring artists in Scotland; with our arts programme championing excellence and experimentation across the arts, screen and creative industries, helping to enhance the culture of local area and the quality of life for its people.
Embedded within this higher-level strategic aim, are intermediate outcomes that we would hope to achieve within 3-5 years:
• People and communities will have access to a diverse programme of arts, culture and heritage which better meets their creative needs and interests
• An increased number and wider diversity of audience members access and enjoy artistic and creative experiences
• The community are more actively involved in the development of our arts, culture and heritage programmes
• We work better in partnership with a range of organisations to maximise our assets and our impact in relation to arts, culture and heritage
Each of these intermediate outcomes have associated activities and outputs deliverable over 1-3 years, which comprise the workplans for staff and volunteers, and all of which are summarised within our Strategic and Operational Plans.
