The Artz Centre is a creative organisation based in the heart of Skelmersdale. It is run by a team of experienced professionals and dedicated volunteers from different sectors of the arts and creative industry. The Artz Centre provides a wide range of creative learning opportunities and professional services to people, schools and businesses from across West Lancashire.
The Artz Centre was opened in January 2014 after a successful application was accepted by the West Lancashire Borough Council to take over an under used community centre in the heart of the town. Since its launch The Artz Centre has seen a huge increase in the number of people using the facilities as many as 250 students from the age of 4-19 are attending classes each week.
The short term success of the centre has not been a coincidence, but based on a clear vision of what is required for a successful and sustainable future. The initial 5 year plan for development and growth was actioned in less than 12 months with the centre now offering more opportunities than previously indicated.
The Artz Centre has become a central hub for creativity, a unique place where people can learn and be inspired by others. It has become a place where new skills, new ideas and new talent are being developed on a daily basis and where the wealth of opportunities continues to expand.
