About Wash Arts

Wash Arts is a community-led arts organisation based in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. We operate on a not-for-profit basis to develop and co-ordinate creative and cultural opportunities in the borough of Erewash and surrounding areas.

We recruit professional artists who work in collaboration with local agencies, groups and residents of all ages. We prioritise work with those whose access to The Arts and creative experiences may be restricted for whatever reason.

We manage an inclusive programme of events, performances, exhibitions and other creative projects. Our pool of freelance artists work with a wide variety of art-forms including everything from 2D and 3D visual arts and crafts to animation, film, photography, environmental arts, music, dance, creative writing, drama and even contemporary blacksmithing.


If you are a local group or an artist with a creative idea you would like to explore, we may be able to help.

Sign up to our mailing list and be kept informed about all our upcoming projects.

You can contact us by email on info@washarts.co.uk or telephone 0115 9328171
