Notes to editors:

HAPPEN exists to bring the benefits of the arts to local communities. Over the years we have delivered a number of projects across Bedfordshire that have explored the use of the arts in addressing social and economic objectives. Our specialism now is in working with local residents to deliver high-quality public art projects, particularly in new communities.

HAPPEN was set up in 2005 with funding from Arts Council England and Bedfordshire’s local authorities.  HAPPEN is hosted by Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity, the leading charity working with communities across Bedfordshire.

Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity (BRCC) is the leading community development agency working across Bedfordshire, with a proven track record built up over 60 years.  BRCC believes that everyone should have the best possible opportunity to be involved in a thriving community, and to access employment, services, housing and the natural environment – regardless of where they live. We work to achieve this through supporting local communities on the ground, as well as working at a strategic level with the county’s leading partners.

BRCC also serves as the Rural Community Council (RCC) for Bedfordshire, one of 38 RCCs in England working together under the national umbrella body, ACRE.
