ASPIRE TRUST: COMMITTED TO COMMUNITY BASED AND SOCIALLY ENGAGED ARTS PRACTICE

Aspire Trust is committed to producing arts practice which has a social purpose, uses high quality participatory techniques and is presented in a wide range of public spaces. We aim to use creative and collaborative arts practice to identify the things that matter to people, to engage them in connecting them to their communities and the wider world and to tell tales that need to be told.
