Our aim to make arts acceisble to and part of the way we achieve this is through projects that can run for months or even years. The projects may be grant funded, sponsored or support from our own income generation and workng with volunteers.

We have an extensive history of project work that we will be showcasing here over time, but while we bring all that work together we are starting with our active and most recent projects.

Art Bank

This is a new initiative that we have developed in partnership with Whitstable artist, Catriona Campbell.  We have been collecting unwanted arts and crafts materials (and books) and will offer these on a “pay what you can basis”. We also will use some of the materials in free, or affordable, creative sessions for adults and children.

The work created by participants featured in an exhibition in September 2021 and all sessions were fully funded and free.
