The arts development team is based at Howden Park Centre, Livingston and Linlithgow Burgh Halls.  Each venue has a busy programme of performances, classes, workshops and exhibitions and is packed with arts and entertainment for all the family.

The arts development team work to ensure that everyone in West Lothian has the opportunity to experience the social, economic, educational, environmental, health and creative benefits of the arts.   The team of arts officers is also responsible for managing a  programme of arts activities in the community and in West Lothian schools.  These activities are designed to encourage participation in the arts among the widest possible range of people and also target individuals and communities who may be less likely to participate due to physical, social or economic barriers.
