BlueJam Cumbria is a company limited by guarantee with charitable objects. We run a non-profit making community music and arts programme.

BlueJam promotes the creation, performance and sharing of new music and new ways of making music in an accessible, multi media environment.

Our stated aims in our Memorandum are: to promote and advance involvement, participation and access to the arts and in particular music and to formulate and establish schemes and projects to use the arts within the community to encourage social inclusion and community cohesion primarily in Cumbria.

We started music workshops in 2002 as a community group and incorporated as a social enterprise in 2007.
