Beacon Arts Centre is committed to lighting up lives in Inverclyde by providing entertaining and transformative cultural experiences that promote well-being, solidarity and creativity. We aim to offer a responsive and diverse programme that is based on thoughtful outreach. We work with people from a range of backgrounds, interests and needs and one of our guiding principles is for the Beacon to feel like a welcoming place for all.

The Creative Engagement programme at the Beacon is designed to offer meaningful interaction with communities across Inverclyde and beyond, encouraging equality by reducing barriers to accessing the arts.

A lot of our work revolves around establishing, building and deepening relationships with partners that are characterised by trust, authenticity, respect and compassion. Through these partnerships we aim to meet the needs of the community. Community workshops, performances and events are held both inside Beacon Arts Centre and across the local area in one of our partner organisations and community hubs.

Being the leading cultural organisation at the heart of Inverclyde we provide opportunities for regeneration and employment by enhancing participants skill sets and creating opportunities for freelance artists. As a Scottish Living Wage employer, we aim to create an enjoyable working experience that is well managed and fairly paid.

A message from our Director, Pauline Kane:

‘We know Beacon Arts Centre is a valued community asset in Inverclyde and therefore our approach to engagement is community-led. We are committed to demonstrating how arts and culture can be a driving force of positive social change and well-being.”
