Signal has always aimed to maximise the amount of interaction between artists and the broader community. The centre encourages people to see the arts generally and artists in particular as a valuable resource which is readily accessible to the community. Since its establishment in 1990 Signal has operated a wide range of arts projects in the community with scores of organisations, voluntary bodies and schools. These projects are tailored to meet the needs of groups involved and may involve two or three staff artists working on a project on a weekly basis over time with an organisation or a once off large project involving larger numbers of staff.

Projects can take place in Signal with participants availing of the centres facilities or on site with the recipients group.

If your organisation, voluntary body, resource centre, school etc., feels that it would be interested in availing of Signal's Community Arts Services just contact the office to see what's possible.

The needs ot the local community are assessed on an ongoing basis by various means. Examples of such events include Book Launches, Awards Ceremonies, Art History Lectures, one day shows for graduating art business students.
