Hip & Harmony CIC 

was established in February 2013.  A CIC, or Community Interest Company to give it's full title,  CIC is a special type of limited company which exists to benefit the community rather than private shareholders.

Our purpose is to bring contemporary arts activities to communities in order to promote social inclusion.

We do this in three ways, by:

  1. Delivering innovative contemporary arts projects and activities
  2. Developing individuals to lead and provide progression routes for Personal Development
  3. Selling services on a commercial basis in order to develop revenue streams that can be invested into our core activities

Each year we have to report to the Regulator of Community Interest Companies.
