We are dedicated to delivering outstanding Circus and Street Arts events. Working as the arts development and promotion agency for Great Yarmouth Borough Council, we also run creative projects of many kinds.
Our focus on Circus and Street Arts grows naturally from this seaside town's rich performance heritage and provides us with an accessible medium for all kinds of projects, interventions and activities that help us:
Throughout the year, we work with communities, schools, producers, artists, festivals, and local and international partners on a number of projects, sometimes intimate, sometimes immense - but always inspirational!
Much of this work is showcased each year at the Out There Festival. Produced by SeaChange, Out There is now the region's largest free festival of street arts and circus and regularly attracts audiences in excess of 60,000 people.
As a registered charity, we rely on grants, donations and sponsors to fund our projects and events.
SeaChange Arts' new 9000 sqft creation space in the historic Drill Hall opened this year. The building will become a Centre of Excellence for Circus and Street Arts, and will be used for artistic training and residencies, as well as a base for the SeaChange Arts team.
