Art with a Heart (AWAH) is a not for profit organisation set up to contribute to the regeneration of the heart of the Town centre using the arts, by making art more accessible to a wider audience, supporting emerging artists, irrespective of age , background, religion or culture and encouraging participation by the local community, societies, groups and schools in the deployment of programmed events. An Arts Centre for the community for the benefit of the community.
It has been long recognised that the High Street needs to offer more than retail to survive. The high street has to offer quality leisure and family time to encourage dwell time.
Exhibitions are diverse and are changed every two to three weeks to encourage regular visitors. Perfectly positioned for footfall. AWAH also encourages dwell time and once in town the visitors are more likely to spend that hour or two within the Town.
Membership to AWAH is by application and approval by the elected Management Committee. The Annual General Meeting will take place in June of each year. 14 days notice will be given to all members of the agenda. This meeting will be minuted.
