Our purpose is to support, facilitate and inspire the Arts in all its forms within our community. Our particular focus is on the creation of art within and by the community itself.
We recognise the importance of the Arts as a major and inclusive conduit of community cultural development, of individual, and community health and wellbeing. We collaborate with other groups across the community, support local artists where possible and bring professional artists into the community to teach and mentor.
We have a small core steering group with a larger volunteer group, who fundraise in the community throughout the year in a variety of ways, including running events, the Market at the Folk Festival, and applying for funding.
We facilitate touring exhibitions & performances, and support local groups where possible with small cash inputs as well as creating a number of arts based community events during the year.
