What we do

We work together with communities, artists and organizations to make art that celebrates people, stories and the natural environment.’

Tough Dough CIC is a non-profit organisation working with communities and schools in Cornwall since 2005.

How do we do this?
We initiate, design, fundraise and deliver creative arts projects that highlight the richness of the culture and environment of Cornwall.
Our aim is to encourage participation and stimulate new audiences through our projects.
