Crewe Arts Development Programme

Crewe Arts Development Programme and Arts Trail

Crewe Town Council has been awarded UKSPF funding to deliver an Arts Development Project and Arts Trail between January 2024 and March 2025. The trail will be displayed in accessible locations throughout the town for residents and visitors alike to enjoy.

Project participants will be supported to help them learn and develop skills, leaving Crewe not only with a beautiful arts trail but also with empowered creatives with the know-how to fund, create, curate and showcase more of their artworks in future!

Why arts and culture matters

Art and culture has the potential to boost Crewe’s economic growth by bringing people into our town centre and creating creative job opportunities. Did you know that arts and culture contributes £10.6 billion to the UK economy? The UK has a creative economy worth £27bn and culture brings £850m to UK, through tourism, each year.

Events, museums, theatres, music venues galleries and libraries are the beating heart of towns up and down the UK. Not only does arts and culture bring prosperity, it bring communities together, has a  wide range of positive impacts on health and wellbeing  and boosts community pride.
