Creative Communities Group

The CCG focuses on visual and performing arts, great stories and narratives to inspire others to ‘make a difference’ through lifelong learning. Members raise awareness of important issues and inspire others to get involved in the common good. The CCG’s aims can be reduced to micro levels such as a campaign to clean up your local street; medium levels such as Preston Soup and macro levels such as educating people on the importance of participation and active citizenship.



  • I am honoured to become a member of the creative communities group and hope I can play an increasing role in supporting active citizenship, lifelong learning and regeneration throughout Lancashire and the UK though partnership, community engagement, building resilience and social justice.

  • ‘This (CCG co-organised) event both informs, supports, provides practical help and insight to all who attend. Good keynote speakers, many advice agencies and a free health check make up an exceptional event.”

    - Councillor Trevor Hart

  • I’m proud to be a member of this great organisation. The creative community group is a model of best practice for active citizenship and lifelong learning on a global level. They believe in the power of partnerships and how working together can transform communities.

  • The event (co-organised by the CCG) was FANTASTIC. My overall feeling was that everyone who attended had a great time.  The sessions I saw were so uplifting and there were also some great networking opportunities.
