Welcome to Cambridge Arts Network (CAN)!
CAN is a forum of over 1000 professional artists, arts and cultural organisations operating in Cambridge and the surrounding area and is coordinated by Cambridge City Council.
The network hosts an annual arts conference in Cambridge to debate and discuss key issues that face the sector, alongside organising workshops, skill-sharing sessions, monthly informal meet-ups and producing a regular e-newsletter that features arts news, opportunities, jobs, training, events, projects and much more.
This website is a free online network and resource where CAN members can network, showcase their work and share information on their latest news, projects or events. The aims of CAN are:
- To enable networking, information and skills sharing and encourage creative practice by providing a platform for members to meet, discuss, collaborate and strengthen connections
- To disseminate relevant information, opportunities and news to the membership
- To raise the profile of artists, practitioners and organisations in Cambridge
- To create a collective and united voice to champion the arts in Cambridge
Members of CAN include arts organisations, venues, creative businesses, freelance practitioners and artists, festivals, museums, representatives from district and county councils, arts development officers, arts educators, local media and students working across a range of art forms including visual arts, crafts, music, dance, film and digital media, theatre, performing arts, public art, literature and live art.
