Creative Support

July 27, 2017


LeftCoast Academy is a programme of professional creative practice workshops – designed to support the needs of local makers, artists and generally creative folk, by giving you the fundamental building blocks upon which to build a solid professional future.


LeftCoast Express is a self-directed learning programme for artists, creative producers, curators and programmers living in Blackpool and Wyre aimed at developing their leadership skills in the arts.


Future Popular is an opportunity for artists, arts organisations, producers and existing or new collectives based in Blackpool and Wyre, to contribute to LeftCoast’s ambition to find new audiences and explore the space between entertainment/popular culture and art in order to find out what is… the Future Popular.

Golden Section (Assemble)


Golden Section is LeftCoast’s regular creative conversation where we invite a visiting artist, creative or generally extraordinary person to town to give you the chance to hear about how they got where they are today.


LeftCoast Studio is our artist development programme, which creates connections between local creative talent and LeftCoast’s commissioned arts organisations, production teams and all the creative professionals that deliver our creative programme.


Book a LeftCoast Surgery if you are an artist or creative looking for professional development support or just want to talk about your creative ideas and how to put them into action.  We can offer advice on how to apply for funding and build the right network of contacts to get your projects underway.
