Through our projects, we're developing and supporting a thriving cultural offer in Torbay that is high quality, valued, sustainable and embedded in all parts of life. The majority of our current projects are part of Torbay’s Great Place Scheme, a £1.6m pilot programme supported by a grant from Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we will be able to build the foundations and infrastructure for change that will shape a more confident Torbay: ambitious for its future, a great place to live and an even better destination to visit.

We deliver impact through all our projects by:

  • developing partnerships to influence strategic planning and decision-making across Torbay

  • supporting cultural practitioners and venues to continue their work, develop and grow

  • spotlighting everything that’s great about Torbay’s existing arts, culture and heritage

  • focusing on legacy and sustainability in all our projects, and

  • sharing our learning as we work towards our long term vision.
