Collage Arts

For over 25 years, Collage Arts have created opportunities for greater participation in the arts and creative industries for the whole community through a range of innovative learning programmes (designed to help excluded groups re-engage with learning and enter vocational training and employment in the arts and creative industries), business support services, facilities and resources. From two derelict and unusable buildings, Collage Arts have developed a community of over 200 artists and creative businesses, based in the heart of Wood Green’s Cultural Quarter in North London. Collage Arts’ vision for the Chocolate Factories has been the creation of a vibrant centre in the creative industries where people from all social backgrounds can participate.
