About Us

Hi, we’re Revoluton Arts.

We’re a people-powered project on a mission to cultivate grassroots creativity in Luton and put on big, high-quality creative events that delight our town's diverse audiences.

We run events and programmes that aim to inspire and support more Lutonians to engage in creativity in all its forms — from henna art to animation, dance to beat-boxing.

We're based at Marsh House Community Centre — see our contact page for more details.

We're an Arts Council England Creative People and Places project.

How we work

Luton’s people are at the heart of what we do.

Our programme is designed by, with and for Luton’s diverse citizens.

We reach out into all corners of the town, finding out what creativity means to the people who live there and collaborating with them to design creative events and projects that speak to their hearts.

We uncover talent, collaborate with local creatives and develop ‘Revolutonary’ ideas.

What we do

  • Online creative events — keeping Luton connected through creativity in self-isolation
  • Large-scale, spectacular outdoor event commissions
  • Residencies (working deeply embedded in a place for a long time) in:
    • Marsh Farm (in collaboration with Marsh Farm Outreach) — working to put the ART into the heART of democracy with People's Assemblies
    • Bury Park — featuring creative workshops, family events, creative forums

For young people

  • Young people’s programme — creative skills development and experience for 16 to 30-year-olds.
  • Open mic nights — a supportive place for 18 to 30-year-old performers of all types to showcase their talent or watch others perform

For creatives

  • Kickstarter Mini Commissions — investments of up to £400 for local creatives to try new ideas and reach new audiences
  • Creative Cafés — events for local creatives to get together, share project ideas and forge new collaborations.
  • The Producers’ Hub (in partnership with 1DegreeEast) — access for creatives to professional development, mentoring and long-term support from the best producers in the country.
  • The Matrix — a digital platform for local creatives to showcase their work and connect with each other.

This is your time to take part in amazing events, unlock your creative talent or help shape Luton’s creative scene.
