Programming Statement

Working with Artists and Companies

HOME Slough programming statement for artists and companies.

At the moment there are no direct programming opportunities with HOME Slough. And to be honest, we very rarely directly programme work.

We are about more people choosing, creating and taking part in brilliant art experiences in Slough. So our funding is to increase engagement in arts, culture and creativity in the town. Arts Council England has recognised Slough as an area with low engagement in arts compared to other UK towns but also recognises Slough as a place with great creative potential.

Although the lack of arts and cultural events coming to Slough is one of the factors for lower than average engagement, we work closely with the local community to support them in developing the programme they want.

Our work is co-designed, co-commissioned and co-created with our Community Programming Board (CPB), an open group made up of residents and creatives living in Slough.

Together with the CPB, we are working to support the commissioning of new and more diverse work in Slough. As these strands of work develop we will promote open calls for programme submissions, co-commission and co-creation opportunities.

We would be happy to keep your details on a database and hope that you will consider working with us in the future.

Please email your details to info@homeslough.org.uk and use the subject line “Artists and Companies”

Otherwise, follow our social media as any call outs will appear on these channels.
