Artlink Central is a trusted and respected creative social enterprise and charity working across Central Scotland and beyond, inspiring social change through extraordinary participatory arts experiences that:

· challenge, empower and include people

· value the creative voice 

· enhance wellbeing  

Strategic aim

Strengthening and improving arts and health practice through creative collaborations which set out to increase individual participants’ sense of autonomy and self, in a meaningful and enjoyable way.

Artistic Vision

To explore the creative potential of socially engaged arts practice in public and sited spaces


Artlink Central brings artists together with people experiencing exclusion, disability or disadvantage

1. To create challenging experimental work with no concessions, bound together with a shared love of cultural exchange

2. To use creativity to break down the barriers between us, forming the perfect environment in which to create work which is as engaging for the (sometimes unsuspecting) audience as it is for the participants

3. To build a model of creation that all people working in the creative arts should pay attention to

4. To honour the unique perspective and voices of our participants and partner artists and boldly present their unique work on a public platform
