Global Grooves is an artist-led Carnival arts organisation based in the North West of England based in The Vale. We bring together the very best culturally diverse artists from around the world to create stunning carnival presentations, develop next generation artists, incubate companies, stimulate innovation in the sector and inspire diverse communities to participate in Carnival, both across UK and internationally.
We draw on worldwide cultural art forms to deliver jaw-dropping, inspirational Carnival experiences through music, dance and visual arts. As the only Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) in Tameside, we are proud to say we will soon run the North's only Carnival Centre of Excellence. Artist-led and ambitious, we work throughout the UK and ‚ as our name suggests ‚ internationally, bringing together world-class artists with young people, communities and organisations to create the most extraordinary opportunities, moments and memories.
Providing training, mentoring and consultancy coupled with volunteering, participation and performance, we have witnessed that the immersive nature of Carnival can take people on phenomenal journeys, allowing them to discover everything they need for their own personal growth.
