Lancaster Arts Partnership  

Formed in 2009, the Lancaster Arts Partnership is a consortium of organisations working together to champion and promote the strategic development of excellent arts activities in Lancaster District.

The consortium's work is wide-ranging and developing quickly. We work with other arts and non-arts organisations in order to:

  • offer a strategic vision for the arts in the Lancaster district;
  • increase the profile and importance of arts in the district of Lancaster, regionally, nationally and internationally;
  • initiate partnership, cross-art and cross-sectoral work that creates new opportunities;
  • expand the collective knowledge-base and effectiveness of the arts sector.

We work particularly closely with Arts Council England, Lancaster BID, Lancashire County Council and Lancaster City Council, all of whom support and contribute to the Partnership.

First Fridays

First Fridays is a monthly multi-disciplinary mini-festival of the arts, which happens in Lancaster on the first Friday of every month. Each event brings together artists and performers, from the local and national scene, in venues across Lancaster - featuring music, literature, drama, dance, visual arts, cinema, poetry and much more.

Ludus Dance is currently providing project management leadership for the First Fridays programme.
