OutPost Arts believe that rural arts can be ambitious, contemporary, and diverse, and that by engaging the community it can also be a powerful force for change. They have three key aims: to positively affect education, health and well-being, and community development/regeneration via creative activities and artistic expression.

OutPost Arts facilitates opportunities to allow people of all ages and backgrounds to engage with activities that promote creativity and expression. The close partnerships with key organisations in the community reaches a diverse number of people and make a positive difference to the lives and environment of the people that live there.
