Community arts organisation providing direct access to the arts and support for artists in the heart of Derry's most deprived communities

Greater Shantallow Community Arts formed in 1999 to provide direct access to the arts in the heart of local communities, using music, dance, drama, film, digital/visual arts, carnival, festivals and exhibitions we deliver the ARC (Art Reaching Communities) programme.

GSCA has at it core the ethos of social inclusion and the facilitation of creative expression, we develop skills and connect local people to artistic opportunity and performance.

Each year we stage the Earhart Festival as a focal point for showcasing to the world the artistic talent that inhabits our communities. We are a community arts organsiation that defines what 'Community Arts' is, we are a creative connector.
