Skimstone Arts is a welcoming, safe yet risk taking charity, passionate about promoting equality and visibility.

Our mission is to support diverse artists and communities and those at risk of social isolation to create work with, for, and about the world that matters to them.

We produce an annual programme of events, exhibitions, touring performances, radio broadcasts and UNITY Festival exploring the themes of humanity and the environment.


We collaborate with co-creators, artists and audiences who are varied in their needs, lives and isolation to create authentic artworks locally, nationally and internationally.


We support our Young Artists Collective and their band Reality Boots to create work about what they want to say about the world for our programmed events.


We work with a range of partners regionally, nationally and internationally to create work that contributes to important research and invites audiences to think about social action.
