Cromer Artspace

Cromer ArtSpace aims to engage and inspire the local community with art in public places, encouraging audience engagement and participation by increasing the understanding of the arts. We aim to be fresh and outward looking, supporting artists and bringing works and events of quality and imagination to Cromer.

Cromer Artspace will enable projects which increase accessibility, support local businesses and help the arts to become valued as a vital part of local life.

Cromer Artspace research

Research Project

In 2020 Cromer Artspace commissioned a research project which investigated how other towns have developed high quality, innovative and contemporary public art – opening opportunities on a world scale for participation and understanding.

Interviews were undertaken with interested locals, arts professionals, innovators and grant giving bodies. The resultant report has enabled us to plan and formulate ideas for future possibilities which would be suitable for Cromer.
