Community Focus is an inclusive multi-arts centre based in Barnet, North London. We work to encourage all members of the community to participate in the arts, to gain confidence in their own creativity and to challenge any barriers that they may face through integration, innovation and inclusion.
Our mission is to proactively improve the quality of life of all our members through an artistic programme of regular workshop sessions and short & long term outreach projects.
Through a range of artistic mediums, Community Focus reaches out to people facing disadvantage in their daily lives, including: Adults with learning disabilities People with mental health issues Young people at risk of exclusion Children from refugee families People with physical disabilities Older people.
Established in 1978, we have an excellent track record of providing high quality participatory projects in visual, performing and digital arts, delivering projects for funders including The London Borough of Barnet, Trusts and Foundations and individuals. Our well-established administrative and project management team have a combined experience of over 20 years in creating and delivering a broad range of projects both at Community Focus and in the wider community.
Combined with our outstanding art tutors, who are highly skilled artists in their own right, we are well placed to deliver beneficial, participatory and inclusive community arts.
