Future Impact

We are building a good track record in terms of monitoring, communicating, analysing and improving our social impact.

Partners and Supporters

We are grateful to our funding partners who allow the valuable work we do to reach as wider audience as possible and we are proud to be a part of the diverse and thriving Bristolian Creative Community.

Inclusive & Diverse

It's really important that these aren't just words for us, but they are values which we live and breathe. They're not our headline, but they're at our core. That's all.

PAPER Arts Values

Supporting all creatives

Since 2014, we’ve been providing industry knowledge, mentoring and creative enterprise training for young people; from workshops, courses, internships and work experience programmes. 

Our method is to focus on the individual, working out what you need to accomplish your aspirations and reach your full potential, whilst providing you with the right opportunities at the right time.

Do you have a creative idea that you want to take further? Do you want to gain experience in the creative industry? Or are you interested in becoming self-employed, but not sure where to start?

Then get in touch and find out how we can help today!
