Driven by ArtReach, Northwood Community Arts (NCA) was established in 2005, from a base at St John’s United Reformed Church, in Northwood, Hillingdon, supported by a group of enthusiastic, local people in response to a growing need and demand for creative community opportunities and facilities in the local area. As a formally established voluntary organisation, NCA is a genuinely community led group which is committed to delivering a programme of creative projects designed to excite and inspire all sections of the community. The programme, directed by ArtReach, is facilitated by professional practitioners and includes activities such as children’s summer circus skills courses, dance workshops, creative programmes for the over 50s, theatre shows and inter generational family activities. The programme emphasis is on high quality provision with a focus on engaging and inspiring activities to encourage participation from the wider community, particularly those who might not normally access an arts facility or creative activities.
