About Shetland Arts

Shetland Arts was founded in 2006. It brought together the work of two organisations whose collective histories provide Shetland Arts with a local, national and international reputation for arts development and delivery, built over 20 years of work and innovation.

Shetland celebrated as a place where inspiration and innovation are valued; where people  want to live, work and study; where  individual creative opportunity is  available to all; where each achieves  their full creative potential; where personal development improves life  circumstances, styles and choices;  the full social and economic potential  of the islands is achieved.

Shetland Arts today runs the Garrison Theatre in Lerwick, Bonhoga Gallery in Weisdale Mill and promotes a year round programme of music, craft, theatre, literature, visual arts, dance and film events. We also own and operate Mareel, the UK’s most northerly music, cinema and creative industries centre.
