We champion, develop and invest in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people's lives. We support activities across the arts, museums and libraries – from theatre to digital art, reading to dance, music to literature, and cra^s to collections.
Between 2015 and 2018, we will invest £1.1 billion of public money from government and an estimated £700 million from the National Lottery to help create art and culture experiences for everyone, everywhere. www.artscouncil.org.uk

CORNWALL'S REGIMENTAL MUSEUM
The museum and its collections have been developed over many years by dedicated people with a love of Cornwall's own regiment, the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry (DCLI) and military history. It stands as a testament to the soldiers who have served over the centuries. Looking to the future, the vision is to take the museum onto even greater things and make it a great place for learning about our military heritage. The museum's aim is to educate, entertain and inspire a broad range of people of all ages and to make a real contribution to the local community and county.
Cornwall Theatre company Collective Arts has an excellent reputation in delivering large-scale outdoor epic theatrical experiences, alongside its touring theatre. The company prides itself in acting as a catalyst for communities to explore their own artistic endeavours. It works with freelance performers and practitioners, with relevant project knowledgeand experience relating to specific productions. One of our main aims is to promote Cornish culture and heritage. We aim to increase awareness and appreciation of Cornish culture and heritage by celebrating and interpreting our past.
Collective Arts began life as The Cornish Theatre Collective. The company was founded by visionary director Dominic KnuRon. He was a highly respected all-rounder in the world of theatre, directing productions throughout the UK. Although he had great success touring a wide variety of plays, his greatest achievements will probably be the UK premiere and five subsequent tours of Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist, and directing the Ordinalia Miracle play cycles in St Just-in-Penwith between 2000-2004. Phil Innes took over the reins following Dom’s death, and Jason Squibb is the current Artstic Director.
The Company objectives are:
To educate the public in the arts of theatre and drama of all kinds.
To bring high quality productions to the public using all means of theatrical, film and other recorded media.
To devise and deliver educational workshops to accompany said productions.
To provide a forum within which professional ar>sts can prac>ce and develop their skills.
To promote Cornish culture and other relevant contemporary issues through said arts for the people of Cornwall and beyond.
