Community Focus

CF is an inclusive arts centre based in the borough of Barnet in North London, founded in 1978 by photographer Maria Bartha.

We have cherry picked our superb team who think on their feet and excel at designing bespoke projects and courses for our clients because, after all –  we all have different needs.
We actively seeks ways to extend our reach into the community; working with an unlimited variety of different groups and organisations including: our local authority, local resident networks, schools, special schools and higher education institutions, right through to theatre companies and national charities.
We work with over 1000 clients per year!
We believe in:
  • Excellence within the arts.
  • Social mobility.
  • Inclusivity as a norm.
  • Solving problems in our communities using creativity.
  • The health and wellbeing that the arts offer.
  • The transferable skill sets that the arts brings.
 CF works consistently with those members who have:
  • A love of the arts.
  • A desire to grow as a person.
  • Social challenges.
