Severn Arts is one of the leading, strategic, inclusive arts organisations in Worcestershire. As a charitable company, Severn Arts has the freedom and flexibility to diversify its business and to be entrepreneurial in its approach. It intends to develop its business/commercial operation, whilst retaining a strong social ethos and providing arts and music educational experiences for all, but with a particular focus on children and young people in the county.
The Company was formed in June 2018 and currently provides music tuition, performance opportunities, instrument hire and cultural events and projects for over 10,000 children and young people in Worcestershire. Severn Arts is the lead organisation for Worcestershire’s Music Education Hub, funded by Arts Council England to develop and deliver accessible, high quality music education for young people in Worcestershire. We are commissioned by Worcestershire County Council to deliver the County Arts service and by Worcester City Council to support community festivals. We are also working in partnership with Malvern Hills District Council and the consortium members of a new arts programme, Reimagine Redditch to support the creative sector to grow and develop audiences
