We have a social aim based around bringing the community together to discover and enjoy cultural and diverse art. Art is an important tool for expression, learning, therapy and healing. We use our artistic skills to interact, inspire and promote cultural diversity.
NINE RED Presents… (CIC) supports local community groups, schools and organisations, by providing Cultural Art Exhibitions and Workshops. We are able to donate hire of the exhibitions for community purposes upon request.
