Glossary of Terms

Here are some of the regular words Trinity uses to describe our work and activities and what they mean to us

Creativity is the process by which we or others make or present something; a work of art, a song or a show, for example

Culture is the result of that creative process and how we meet that in our everyday lives; that could be in museum, theatres or gallery, at a carnival or music venue, or even in our homes and online spaces​

An Associate is an Artist collective or grassroots group we work with and support in order to further our charity mission and values​

An Artist is anyone developing their professional or emerging career in the arts​

An Artist Rider the Principles, Criteria and Contract is how we communicate to Artists about the work we want to resource​, how and why

Our People is anyone who we work for/with e.g. audiences, participants, communities and target groups​ such as children and young people
