Streets of Brighton Street Arts Festival (1994-2007) was a leading catalyst in the 20 million secondary spend identified by a study into the economic impact of Brighton Festival 2004 (Brighton Festival 2004:  a study of the economic and cultural impact of Brighton Festival upon Brighton & Hove (commissioned by Brighton & Hove City Council, Arts Council England South East and Brighton Festival Society)....

but the benefits of our work are not just economic:

‘the community of Stanmer seemed to feel transformed and enriched with a new vigour and optimism.'   Local musician participant in WILDWORKS ‘Souterrain'

Souterrain ‘recreated a declining community spirit' – a Stanmer Villager, WILDWORKS

These are forceful testaments to the value of innovative arts to invigorate cities and communities - and to the pioneering partnerships we have forged with artists, funders and partners to achieve such powerful legacies

“Zap Art's success in taking creativity to the heart of communities is recognised at a national and international level. It is highly respected for its work with government, cultural partners and leading artistic talent to widen participation, stimulate artistic risk-taking and lever major funding and resources.”

Jerry Le Sueur,  Board member, Zap Art


"Bigfest is a unique festival of celebration for all our communities in Hillingdon, with our partners Zap Art we have created an annual event that inspires and excites participants and audiences alike!"
