we create art with people in Doncaster to improve life, learning & health
We are darts.
We make high-quality, inclusive, creative experiences across the borough of Doncaster. Our programmes are open to everyone, particularly those who have the least access to the arts.
Our purpose is for anyone in Doncaster to learn and connect by taking part in the arts.
Our mission is for everyone to feel an accepted and valued part of the community, creating a healthier and more connected society.
We deliver Creative Learning & Creative Health.
Our experiences are always designed for the purpose of those taking part. We are person-led. Our sessions and artists respond to our participants’ needs collaboratively using co-design. We go through the creative process together. In a way that suits you.
The arts are a proven way to help improve physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. We focus on arts and education and arts and health. The creative experience is the value. The life improvement is the added extra.

We are a friendly welcoming building where lots of creative activity happens and a regular programme of family-friendly and world-class exhibitions, events and activities.
It’s more than a place to just come and see. It’s about coming together and being a part in the arts. It’s about the doing. For everyone to have a safe place to come to and feel comfortable to express themselves, learn and connect.
