Mirador is a charity which celebrates and is inspired by people discovering how magical it is when arts, heritage and culture converge.

Based in Lancashire, we are a highly experienced team that blends its expertise and know how to originate, research, develop and deliver fascinating and rewarding heritage projects that matter to communities.

We are guided by some basic principles and approaches:

  • To be original and imaginative
  • To deliver great heritage, art and cultural projects
  • To create programmes that excite, entice and enthral
  • To make and help others achieve work that matters
  • To make the whole experience great fun
  • To work with people to help them create a legacy.

Our starting point is helping connect people, in a rewarding, tangible and enjoyable way, with their location, heritage and history. Our role is to ensure that all engagement becomes a celebration of cultural traditions and collections as well as the monuments to the past such as buildings, industrial heritage and landscapes. What makes our approach to achieving this so distinctive is that arts and creativity provide the magic to fire the imagination and help stimulate unique results.
