Blystra Arts is a Newquay based performance art company who put on and create unique arts events and performances that are interactive, fun and accessible, designed to engage the whole community. Performance and visual art are the main art forms of the organisation.
Blystra Arts is a Community Interest Company, with the main aim of the organisation to cultivate a positive image of Newquay both within Newquay, across Cornwall and to the rest of the UK. Blystra is a collective of artists and practitioners (7 main practitioners, who all work in different areas) with a further 10 to 12 regular volunteers who help run projects and organise events. They create community performance pieces and artwork themselves and with groups, as well as promoting other professional arts events within their community. Their projects and activities offer Newquay audiences a unique and quirky experience, using the arts to engage and work with groups that are disaffected, disadvantaged or not exposed to much arts and culture activity. Blystra Arts uses green and eco technologies to power all their outdoor creations.
