Take Art is a unique, magical, life-changing organisation that doesn't live in a venue, or studio or a whacking great theatre but in the villages, towns and rural communities of Somerset. Every year we work with over 15,000 people across the county, providing opportunities for all ages and abilities to experience, participate and work within the arts.Find out more at www.takeart.org
Take Art has been working, singing and doing the splits in Somerset for 25 years, long enough to build real relationships with communities, artists and audiences. From our hub in South Petherton we run one of the UK's most celebrated rural touring schemes and services in dance, theatre, music and early years creativity. Through our work we seek to educate, inform national practice, improve self-esteem, empower, build empathy, careers, happiness as well as physical and mental well-being.
Every year we work with over 15,000 people across the county, providing performance and workshop opportunities for thousands of children, young people, adults, older people and vulnerable groups. Through our Live rural touring scheme we put on over 60 professional shows in rural communities. Through our dance, theatre, music and early years services we put on regular festivals, performance platforms, deliver large scale projects and influence regional and national policy on the arts.
