Empowering people through the arts, creativity and fun!
People Express is a professional participatory arts organisation, rooted in communities in South Derbyshire since 1990, whose work with communities has been used as a model of good practice in Bangladesh, Japan and across Europe.
People Express supports local groups to work with a wide range of highly skilled and inspirational professional artists across all art forms. Our projects enable participants to become the designers, makers and/or performers of their own art work.
We successfully encourage people of all ages and abilities to get involved in the arts, by listening to what they would like to do and what they have to say. Together we dream, we plan, we fundraise and we deliver arts projects that are as unique as the people who have created them…but mainly we all have a lot of fun!
People Express shares decision-making and choice with the groups we work with, we encourage local leadership, we filter through skills, information and contacts, building a sense of ownership and level of self-confidence that enables groups to move towards running the project or new initiatives independently.
We are an Arts Award Delivery Centre, Arts Award Supporter and Artsmark Partner. We work with children and young people of all ages through projects in the community, events and at their school.
