Creative People and Places is about more people taking the lead in choosing, creating and taking part in art experiences in the places where they live.
 
There are 21 independent projects, each located in an area where people have traditionally had fewer opportunities to get involved with the arts. Creative People and Places projects have reached over 1.2 million people, 90% of who do not regularly engage in the arts.
