Engage with other creative artists, organisations and audiences through HCAN.

If you are an individual or organisation with an innovative idea for a creative arts event or programme and the enthusiasm to commit time and energy to make it happen, HCAN can help.

HCAN is a not-for-profit, community-led organisation that provides a catalyst for creative minds in and around Huddersfield to come together to achieve world-class programmes and projects.

Whether you are an established or emerging artist, musician, writer or working in another creative field, HCAN can offer access to a wide network of support through our social media groups, Ideas Incubator and Join the Circle network.

We aim to:

  • Seek out opportunities to negotiate pathways for emerging artists
  • Find innovative ways to bring creative providers together for new projects
  • Inspire, provide and facilitate collaboration with a diversity of partners
  • Excite creativity through networking across traditional boundaries
  • Engage with the community and attract audiences
