Shetland Arts is the lead arts agency in Shetland.
We’re here to support creative people. We believe that creativity is an important part of everybody’s life, no matter who you are, where you live or what you do.
We believe that art can change lives. What’s more, we all have stories to tell about what art has given us. Our challenge is to enable and empower our communities, groups and individuals to fulfil their creative potential.
Shetland has huge pride in its culture and creative traditions. Aspects of Shetland’s creative activity, such as textiles and music have, for many years, enjoyed an international profile. Increasingly, Shetland artists of all kinds are receiving the recognition they deserve in a global marketplace.
