Our Mission

You said: "Develop a dynamic space to support cultural activities, community growth and the local economy in the Calder and Ryburn Valleys."

We’re on a journey with the people of the Calder and Ryburn Valleys who want to create a multi-site, multi-purpose venue to community and local economic activity as well as a space to support arts, music and cultural events.

Fire and Water is both a physical space and, with the people of the two valleys, a wider local place-making initiative.

Our mission is constantly evolving through ongoing community consultation to reflect the aspirations, strengths and needs of the people of the Calder and Ryburn Valleys.

Fire and Water will always take an Asset Based Community Development approach to our activities building on the strengths of our people and with co-design and development at the heart of everything we do.
