JOLT logo

Artists and creatives are at the heart of any vibrant city. Our aim is to develop Gloucester’s next generation.

The creative industries are the fastest growing sector in the country and our mission is to make Gloucester a hotspot for art and creativity.

To make this happen, we are developing a huge programme of support, resources and opportunities to help people earn a living in the creative sector – right here in Gloucester. The home of this support and resources is the city’s flagship creative hub. A place where people can come to work creatively in an enjoyable environment where it is easy to find the help you need. This is what we call JOLT!

Did we mention that all of this is free?! Funding from the Great Place Scheme means we are able to offer fully funded:

  • Creative Start-up programmes
  • Specialist workshops
  • Events
  • Ways to meet other creatives
  • Hotdesking
  • Creative incubation

Many of these opportunities are already happening now, such as the Jolt workshop programme and PechaKucha Nights.

Jolt Studios has been fully revamped and is now open for artists and creators to access 24/7.
