A Heritage of Creativity: Our Big Picture is located in a historic Grade 2 listed building on Grimsby High Street in North East Lincolnshire. This early Georgian building has its roots in the early 1700s, with evidence of a live/workspace dating back to the 14th century, as part of the old marketplace.

Our Unique Mix:

We offer a unique blend of arts, heritage, and community activities and programming that sets us apart in our sector. This unique mix is rooted in our deep engagement with both visual art in its widest context and historical exploration and preservation.

As a community-centric organisation, we provide a creative, safe, supportive, and social space. Our mission revolves around active engagement with children, young people, and their families and communities, emerging artists, minority groups, and underserved communities.
