Shetland Arts has a dynamic approach to arts development across a range of art forms. A dedicated team of specialist artform officers devises and supports a high quality programme of events and activities based on the belief that creative opportunity should be available to everybody and that an arts organisation should listen to the ideas of the community it serves, develop skills, and wherever possible, facilitate dreams, ideas and ambitions. We will continue to challenge and inspire through the work we do, and we want you to be a key voice in the shaping of our future plans.

We realise the need to be flexible and adaptive; to be driven by our community and its aspirations. It is our arts officers’ job to work with you to devise radical and exciting new activity.

Shetland Arts welcomes your ideas. Suggestions for future arts activity can go straight from your computer keyboard to our planning meetings, so please feel free to contact us. It doesn’t need to be your own project: it could be something you’d like to see happen, or an artist you’d particularly like to see visit Shetland.  Just let us know about it and we’ll get back to you.
