Junction Arts Archives 1970's

Where did Junction Arts begin?

Junction Arts emerged from a small organisation called South Normanton Community Arts in the 1970s. Originally based in the old New Street School they worked predominantly in Pinxton and South Normanton, mining communities on either side of Junction 28 of the M1.

Their early work consisted of providing arts activities for summer play schemes, for children from the local area, and producing carnivals and festivals.
