  • Inclusive : Everyone is welcome – as organisers or participants – and we’ll help you do it
  • Hands-on : They’re about joining in with arts, science, crafts and tech. Doing something together.
  • The process as much as the events : Communities from all over Lancashire making it happen.
  • Part of a Campaign : A national and international shout for access and inclusion for culture.
