Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the creative and cultural support organisation for the following nine projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity's transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.

Support Us

Carn to Cove is run by Creative Kernow, a registered charity which supports the cultural and creative sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Our mission is to enrich and energise communities through investment in the creative arts and industries. For 40 years, we have contributed to positive social and economic change which has had regional and national impact. Participation in the arts is proven to improve health, confidence and community cohesion. Our approach – co-creating culture with communities – builds strong foundations for positive change.

Carn to Cove empowers dedicated local volunteers to curate and promote amazing creative work and performances in their local communities. This gives rural communities access to reasonably priced performances, a stone’s throw from their homes. No travelling hours to get to the theatre!

We value kindness, creativity, difference, professionalism and emergence and aim to embed these attributes in all our activity and thinking.

We listen to what our communities need and we deliver high impact work…

‘I just want to say how vital it is that Carn to Cove exists. Me and my partner are two creative practitioners living in Cornwall, without a car, so having access to culture like this has sustained us within our locality.’ 

‘Incredible. I couldn’t recommend the show enough, and blown away that it was brought to Liskeard.’ 

Over the next year we are planning to expand our reach to more children and young people through performances and workshops, but we need your help to do this.

How can you get involved?

The positive effects of Carn to Cove are needed now more than ever, particularly given the isolated nature of some of our rural areas. You can help people young and old benefit from the life changing effects of the arts, through our much loved Carn to Cove Programme by making a donation today. Your donation will ensure that we can continue to improve the lives of hundreds of people across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Thank you so much for your support – we couldn’t do it without you.
