Forest Arts Centre in Walsall is developing an extraordinary new Artzone space within the shell of a former sports hall. The new facility has massive potential as a performance space and creation centre and structural work will be completed in early 2015.

ArtReach is working with the team at Forest Arts Centre and Walsall Borough Council to develop plans for  and programming equipping the space, with the aim to maximise potential to complement the ambitious events and activity schedule already delivered at the Centre (which also houses Walsall Music Service). The new Artzone offers an opportunity to further develop artistic partnerships and enhance the profile of Forest Arts Centre, which is a slightly hidden jewel in the heart of the West Midlands.
