Inverclyde Place Partnership was established in 2014 as a partnership between Creative Scotland and Inverclyde Council. Its aim is to develop the arts to make Inverclyde a more attractive place for visitors, a more inspiring place to live and a more enriching place to work and do business.
Inverclyde Pace Partnership primarily seeks to support grass-roots, professional arts activity, building capacity in artists and art organisations, developing and supporting partnerships with Community Planning partners and producing a range of inspiring arts events that nurture a positive identity for Inverclyde.
These have included Engine Shed, a public art research and development programme, Vessels, a collaboration between groups of young creative people in Scotland, Jamaica and Ghana and the creation of the Galoshans Festival bringing Hallowe’en home.
Inverclyde Place Partnership is financially supported by Creative Scotland and Inverclyde Council and managed by the Beacon Arts Centre.
