To enrich and encourage public support and  involvement with the arts

Inspiration SignThe public will be actively encouraged to play a role in supporting and encouraging the arts and artists and makers in their locality. Businesses and individuals will have the opportunity to  sponsor the work and development of artists and makers who might normally fall through the ‘net’ of traditional training or funding. The public can become  Friends of the Trusts with all the perks that ongoing commitment brings, such as private views, sneak previews and invitations to visit artists in their studios. There  is also the opportunity to become a Founding Member and play a major role in this exciting new venture or simply support local arts by attending exhibitions, making donations or purchasing arts and crafts.
