About Us

Somerset Arts Business Cultural Alliance

We believe Somerset and its towns are defined by its arts and culture sector: Our cultural organisations, artists, musicians, performers and proud history of creative expression are a crucial part of our identity, vitality, and economic growth. As a membership and service organisation working on behalf of this sector, we believe in supporting the growth of arts organisations and their audiences.

About Us

Meet Andrew Knutt, Our Chairman

“As an artist, venue owner, provider of arts and culture events and active citizen in other arts and culture disciplines I see the real benefits in individuals, communities and economies. Only through one voice can we bring arts and culture investment into Somerset, build partnerships with public and private bodies and support active practitioners.”

– Andrew at Creative Industries Conference 2016
