West Lothian is rich in voluntary arts organisations. Every month around 150 different groups meet in communities from Whitburn to Winchburgh and from Polbeth to Pumpherston.
Groups are involved in a huge range of arts activities including music, crafts, dance, drama, film, heritage, photography, visual arts and writing.
Community Arts supports and encourages these organisations by providing training, advice and access to an arts grant scheme which gives financial assistance for a range of different initiatives, including forming a new organisation, the purchase of equipment, professional fees and projects which support youth initiatives.
Contact information for most of the groups can be found in the Find a Local Group section of the website or go to the What's On section for information on performances, events, exhibitions and classes.
