"Your feedback is a vital step in our research and development so we can build our way towards a better, brighter future for supporting and enjoying the arts in the midlands!

At Dunamaise Arts Centre, we too have worked through harsh challenges and changes in 2020.  However, we are taking the chance to review the past and explore an ambitious future together with our audiences and artists.
