Arts Out West covers West Cumbria (Allerdale and Copeland Borough Councils, plus areas around Barrow-in-Furness) . It is a region which includes some very isolated rural communities and some urban areas, often facing significant deprivation. There are currently about 25 venues on the scheme, ranging from traditional village halls to urban community centres and small arts centres, as well as a secondary school and a library. We are based in the Kirkgate Centre, an arts and community centre in the small market town of Cockermouth.
