Community Focus (CF) is an inclusive multi-arts centre based in Barnet. We work to encourage members of our community of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to participate in the arts, to gain confidence and to challenge barriers through integration and innovation.
As an inclusive organisation, we are receptive to the needs of our community. We remain flexible and open to new partnerships. If you have an idea for a project, speak to a member of our team and we will try to find a way to realise your vision. A key strand of our strategy is to remain flexible and open to new partnerships.
We have developed long-standing relationships with artists of the highest calibre. Many of our artists are Royal College of Art (RCA) graduates.
