Welcome to our community arts programme, Arts and You, for the second half of 2019. We hope you will find something in it to inspire you to join us. It’s about creativity, it’s about getting involved, it’s about arts and you!

From Monday 19 August, CultureNL’s Community Arts Team is offering a new programme of affordable, weekly arts classes that will appeal to children, young people and adults, or all abilities. The classes run weekly until Saturday 12 October then break for the October week, starting back until Monday 21 October and running until Saturday 21 December.

We have lots of arts activities on offer. Ever thought about trying to learn how to play guitar, how to take great photographs, creative writing or learn how to make ceramics? Come along and try something new! Discover the new you and discover your talent!

Our classes offer local, value for money access to a wide range of quality arts activities, workshops and events that we already know you enjoy. It’s your local arts programme and we want to share what we offer as widely as possible across the North Lanarkshire community. Come and join us!
