We all need to express ourselves in some way – to tell our friends how we feel, to complain about the service at the bank, or by getting down on the dance floor!!!   We support a wide range of cultural and expressive activities, from art exhibitions to electro music nights, from creative play days for children to karaoke!

Write To Speak

Volcom has supported Write To Speak to run a range of spoken word events – from big name poets visiting the city – to local people standing up to ‘tell a poem’ for the first time in their lives’.   Click here to watch some of Write To Speak’s local poets expressing themselves as part of the Larkin 25 celebrations.

Roots and Wings

We are part of the consortium that has been successful in bringing £3million into Hull through the Arts Council's Creative People and Places fund. The Roots and Wings programme will draw inspiration from Hull's rich cultural and social histories and be driven by the existing and emerging creative talent in the city. Read the bid to find out more!

Life On Orchard

Craig Marriott used to work as a camera assistant at Tyne Tees television.   He was amazed when he discovered that volcom could lend him a professional video camera, lights, tripod, dolly and track – so that he could make the films he wants to make.   Craig lives on Orchard Park Estate – an area which has just had a much-needed, much-promised regeneration programme cancelled.   He is working with his neighbours and groups of young people on the estate to produce a film about their lives, working title ‘Life on Orchard’.

Gorgeous Arts LLP

Our Common Treasury supports local theatre companies, artists, musicians and film-makers - and Gorgeous Arts LLP are just one of the independent cultural producers to benefit from membership of the Common Treasury. Being part of Volcom's network not only means that they are able to borrow projectors and screens to create effective backdrops for their performances, but they can also benefit from us promoting their events to hundreds of people and organisations through our infomail - like the above community showcase!
