The Horsebridge Arts Centre provides a vibrant hub at the heart of our community. We are a public space that aims to enrich the lives of local people by encouraging them to access, enjoy and be challenged by arts activities both as participants and audience. By providing creative and cultural activities we aim to combat isolation and promote well-being.

We are open for over 80 hours a week and welcome over 90,000 local people and visitors to the area through our doors each year. Every week there are over 40 different classes, every month there are films, artist talks and clubs, and in one year we can feature over 100 artists in 35+ exhibitions.

To create an engaging arts space we have built relationships with grant funders and shown we can reliably deliver high quality projects that have grown partnerships with schools, community and cultural organisations. Since 2018 the Horsebridge team have developed and curated projects including Think of Me, a WW1 commemorative project, Young Digital Makers and Young History Makers working with local 13 – 25 year olds, the Waste Line project examined the impact we have on our coastal environment, and Why Do You Never Speak, part of a satellite programme of Journeys with The Waste Land at the Turner Contemporary in Margate. In 2019 alone there were nine incredible projects delivered by the Horsebridge team, with more already underway in 2020.
