ARCADE is a charitable community producing company based in Scarborough, led by Rach Drew and Sophie Drury-Bradey. We think everyone is creative and we believe culture belongs to everyone.
Our mission is to
make incredible cultural experiences happen with artists and communities
support our community to develop creativity and ideas
collaborate to make community-led change happen using the arts
We do this through creative projects, workshops, shows, festivals and events. Quite often these are in Scarborough or Bridlington, but we also work across the UK and with national partners. Hear more about the ARCADE story so far from Rach and Sophie on our blog.
Access: what we do and the way we do it is inclusive and accessible
Transparency: operating with a fair and transparent process
Creativity: putting artists at the heart of what we do
Community-led: people, their ideas, passions and campaigns
Diversity: we value different lived experiences
Help us test our mission and make it better. You can do this by joining in with one of our upcoming projects, or by getting in touch for a chat. If you have something you want to make happen we’d love to hear from you.
