Creative programmes

At Live Borders we offer a range of arts and creative programmes and services for those looking to get involved in the arts. Whether you’re a budding author, an up-and-coming musician or the next great stage actor – then we could have a programme or service to meet your needs.

The team promotes and develops arts and cultural activities with schools, community groups, voluntary organisations and businesses providing access to a wide range of quality arts activities and programmes, including guidance and advice on funding, training and learning. The service works with the professional and voluntary arts sectors and is accessible to the general public. Our work covers most art forms including music, dance, drama, digital media, literature, touring theatre, events and audience development.
