Swindon Does Arts was established in 2008 by Swindon Borough Council. It is a partnership, a network and a campaign to increase awareness and participation in arts and culture in Swindon.

We have a proud tradition of community arts engagement in Swindon and the Swindon Does Arts network aims to enhance and promote all kinds of arts and creative activities. It takes a very broad definition of the arts, including performing, visual and crafts and welcomes all those who share our passion.

In 2010, Swindon developed a public sector partnership plan called One Swindon. This plan recognises the social and economic benefits of a strong, vibrant and diverse arts sector and includes a priority that "Everyone is enjoying sports, leisure and cultural opportunities". Swindon Does Arts aims to support this priority by providing a free web based platform for the arts and creative sector to network and promote activities.
