THE PORTHLEVEN ARTS COMMUNITY

What is 'Porthleven Arts'

Porthleven Arts is a Community Interest Company supporting artists, innovators and creatives. We support collaboration, helping you to achieve your full potential. By weaving creativity into the fabric of our community, we encourage everyone to get involved, increasing inclusive cultural opportunities for people in Cornwall.

THE PORTHLEVEN ARTS COMMUNITY

What we do

We believe that everyone has the basic right to experience art. Through an annual calendar of events, culminating in an annual Autumn festival, we’re encouraging participation, appreciation and ultimately making art accessible in all its forms.  We want Porthleven to become a place where artists work, exhibit and live and that people visit to experience art.

Arts opportunities for all
