NEW 'Local Arts Loan' PROMOTIONAL VIDEO
'more arts.' has released a 12-minute video to show our Local Arts Loan programme
Our 'Local Arts Loan' programme selects high quality A-Level student artwork from local schools and provides it to local businesses and other organisations to enhance their office space.
The businesses pay a small amount each week for each piece, which we share with the schools, enabling them to invest in much needed art material and equipment.
Businesses can opt to pay a small amount extra, which we add to our Legacy Fund which we use to fund arts activities to help vulnerable young people.
We also loan pieces of art free of charge to local care homes, encouraging residents to discuss what the art work means to them and perhaps enabling them to reminisce about their younger lives.
Take a few moments to view our new Promotional Video.
If you would like to learn how your organisation can join the programme, and view some of the artwork in our online catalogue, go to the Local Arts Loan section of our website.
