Projects and Programmes
Date: July 2023- March 2024
Date: Since September 2022
Every Friday from 10 am till 1 pm we give the Art Bank stage over to a local maker to artisan, so they promote and sell their work for free, with zero charges from us. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered for a slot.
Date: Since January 2022
Our ‘Open’ callouts have so far led to 25 local artists being exhibited in our installation and exhibition space, ’The Safe’ (the former bank vault). We also give artists and makers the opportunity to have space for free within the venue to run workshops, enabling them to keep all the money they make as well as helping costs to be kept down for our community. Contact email@example.com if you’d like to run a workshop at the Art Bank.
Date: Wednesday 10-2.00
Every week we host this day at the Art Bank, incorporating a Talking Cafe (run by the Mendip Health Connectors) and free arts and crafts sessions. Everyone welcome!
Date: June 2022 - September 2023
Thanks to a grant from the National Lottery Platinum Jubilee Fund, the Jubilee weekend saw the launch of our year-long Community Spirit project! Help us create a giant living sculpture that represents Shepton's Community Spirit. There will also be an opportunity for different groups to get involved in the creation of smaller spirits.
