The Art Bank

Housed in a former high street bank and home to the Art Bank Cafe and Rubbish Art Project, the surroundings are fabulous and creative: an inclusive and diverse community-run venue for the people by the people.

We’re a neurodiverse and LGBTQ+ collective of people that nurtures groups and individuals in their journey to feel included, supported and heard. Our programming is guided by people and performers.

If you have an idea for an event or something you would like to see programmed into the ArtBank please get in touch we would love to hear from you
