HOME Slough is for anyone who would like to try something new and creative. There are a host of events happening right here in Slough, in places you might not expect – recent events have taken place in the Salt Hill Skate parks, the Queensmere Shopping Centre and along the High Street, and at the Trading Estate. Why not take a look?
You may be involved in the arts in your community already and would like to do more, or you may be completely new to arts activities – HOME Slough is here to help you find things to do, and to support you to get more involved. We support all types of creative activities, exhibitions, workshops and performances across theatre, film, dance, music, poetry and visual art.
HOME Slough’s mission is to increase opportunities and awareness of all the arts in Slough, offering ways for everyone to fulfil their artistic potential. In the next two years we want to increase the number of people participating in arts and culture, building the foundations for Slough’s creative future.
HOME Slough is a consortium of arts and community organisations, lead by Slough Council for Voluntary Service. The consortium comprises of Slough Borough Council, Clinical Commissioning Group, SEGRO, RIFCO and The Arts Council. It is funded by Arts Council England and Slough Borough Council.
HOME Slough is part of the Creative People and Places programme, initiated and funded by Arts Council England through the National Lottery. Creative People and Places is about more people taking the lead in choosing, creating and taking part in art experiences in the places where they live. There are 21 independent projects, each located in an area where people have traditionally had fewer opportunities to get involved with the arts. Creative People and Places projects have reached over 1.2 million people, 90% of who do not regularly engage in the arts.
