Art4Action were in the process of creating a Young Artist Support Fund with the aim of promoting the arts to the youth of Purbeck, when we discovered that the Isle of Purbeck Arts Club are already very active in doing this. Therefore it was an easy decision for us to direct our future fundraising activities in this area towards this club.
WHO ARE THE ISLE OF PURBECK ARTS CLUB?
The Isle of Purbeck Arts Club is a wonderful charity within the Purbeck area of Dorset that organises and supports a multitude of activities centred around art and music.
It has an emphasis on supporting young people in the Purbeck area who are studying the arts, whether that be painting or playing an instrument. There are several different bursaries available though the Club, that can go both to schools or to individuals studying the arts. The club also has the Purbeck Instrument Loan Scheme, making a complete range of orchestral instruments available a low hire cost. The club additionally organises an art group whose membership fees help support the club’s activities.
The amount that this charity does to help support and promote art within Purbeck is incredible and we are so excited to assist their efforts through our Young Artist Support Fund, as we believe that supporting the arts for the young people is so important.
