Connecting People & Organisations

SABCA helps arts, culture and heritage people to develop the confidence, find partners, link with national bodies, build imagination and skills needed to build meaningful connections with their communities and other providers.

This is possible through our wide knowledge of the creative industries and the arts and culture sector.  Often people will consult with us about their idea, project or organisation and through this we are able to provide the connections they need to grow, find resources and success.

I have been involved in many of SABCA’s events and cannot think of a better organisation to support the arts and culture sector in Somerset. It goes from strength to strength. The vast knowledge and business support that I have seen practiced in both digital and physical environments are second to none. It is one of the most essential sector support groups in Somerset as we have a lot of arts, culture and creativity here and I support all their work now and in the future.
