communities & young people - legacy


Established in 1995, Strange Cargo have been developing relationships with communities ever since.
People's first experience is often through Charivari Day, a Giant Project or Georges House Gallery and our aim is to encourage those people to regularly participate and return to take part in other projects.

We enable the development and professional training of artists and help to build teams, experience and capacity of the local arts infrastructure.

We work in depth with communities and through our public engagement programmes aim to build community spirit, highlight community issues and find a way for people in the community to voice their opinions.
We have school and community participants who have been involved for 13 years, and school participants who have moved on to professionally exhibit at our gallery and become part of our artist team.
