Open Doors

We are Heritage and Culture in Newark and Sherwood. We’re delighted to have been awarded funding from Arts Council England to become a National Portfolio Organisation from April this year. Through our three-year programme, Open Doors, we aim to develop our understanding of the needs and interests of our communities, increase creative opportunities for young people and underserved groups and become a focal point for culture across Newark and Sherwood.

If you care about communities and want to be part of a thriving artistic and cultural movement in the East Midlands, we want to hear from you!
