Who are GoCreate Taunton CIC?

GoCreate Taunton is a Community Interest Company (CIC) that was set up in 2014 by a group of creative practitioners living or working in Taunton.  GoCreate was formed at a time when the arts and culture had been cut by the government budget and collective feelings were to make the arts more visible and accessible to ALL. The members wanted to work together to create Art events including an annual Arts Festival… hence Taunton Live Arts Festival was born.

ALL people involved in the arts in any way are welcome to join us!

Our members represent areas as diverse as Music, the Visual Arts, Performance, Photography, Film, 3D Design, Ceramics, Writing and Poetry, Teaching, Architecture, Publishing, Graphic Design,Graffiti, Advertising and more.

Our home is at The Arts Hub (Flook House) on Belvedere Road where we run creative workshops for the community.

GoCreate Membership costs £20 a year, for this you have a profile on our website GoCreate.org.uk and social media promotion of your work. You also benefit from free exhibitions, opportunities to be involved in Taunton Live Arts festival and many other creative events.

For information on our festival this summer please visit  tauntonlive.co.uk.
