Gloucestershire Music Makers is a well-established arts organisation and is much-respected within the county and beyond. The small team deliver critically important work with young people and others here, focusing on those with the least opportunities to engage in the arts. They are highly skilled practitioners with all the ingredients needed for a 21st century arts organisation: an emphasis on artistic quality, creativity, and access; a detailed understanding of the needs of their clients/beneficiaries, and of the development needs of arts practitioners; good partnerships and relationships; a focus on sustainability and long-term strategy; and flexible, creative, approaches to their work. The organisation has potential to make a significant impact on the level of engagement in the arts, and the future development of the arts sector in the county.
