Arts Volunteering provides children and young people with exciting opportunities to get involved in creative arts activities, encouraging them to form a lasting enthusiasm for the arts and an awareness of arts heritage and its conservation.

Our Society, in association with The Arts Society Poole and The Arts Society Bournemouth and East Dorset, arranged a lecture titled 'How We Got Ikea! - Scandinavian Design C1880-1960' given by Professor Anne Anderson on Monday 27th January 2020.  All Sixth Form Art Students in our combined local areas were invited to attend. The Arts University Bournemouth kindly allowed us to use their lecture Theatre and Refectory for refreshments after the lecture. Students and Staff from 9 schools attended plus Students from AUB. A wonderful array of cakes were supplied by Society Members.

The Societies hope to be able to arrange another lecture for A Level Students again next year. If any Schools or Pupils have a subject that they would like to be covered, please get in touch!

'Young Arts' has now been renamed ARTS VOLUNTEERING, a national change to reflect an emphasis on encompassing all arts projects, rgardless of the age of the beneficiaries.
