Inspire is a cultural organisation launched by Nottinghamshire County Council. It is a Community Benefit Society which is part of an innovative strategy led by the County Council to manage some of its libraries, archives and cultural services across the county.
Our cultural services have a track record of inspiring people to achieve, learn and develop, whether through a love of reading, music, the arts or education, and Inspire promises to deliver day-to-day business as usual for everyone who uses its services.
Inspire delivers the following services on behalf of the Council:
- Arts and Culture
- Inspire Music Teaching and Nottinghamshire Music Education Hub
- Inspire Learning
- Education Library Service.
