Art Works at The Mill

Art Works coordinates creative and cultural activities, exhibitions, workshops and events at The Mill, and engages local people in making, showing and experiencing all kinds of art.

Our aims

  • To contribute to The Mill’s overall aim to reduce isolation and build a strong community.
  • To celebrate the creativity of all sections of the community: all ages and abilities.  We especially welcome anyone who might feel marginalised or intimidated by traditional art venues.
  • To present projects that concern the community.
  • To empowered people to get involved and learn new skills, leading to an increase of social confidence and wellbeing.
  • To present regular exhibitions with accompanying events every year.

Our belief

Imagination and creativity can help people to see and experience things differently, to express themselves and inspire others.

Inspiration to get involved

The opportunity to exhibit and view art has brought many hundreds of people into the building, and inspired them to become involved – either as exhibitors, volunteers or users of the community spaces in The Mill.
