There are 21 Societies in this Area covering Dorset, Wiltshire and part of Somerset.
Our Area reaches out to the public in several ways: with a bi-annual ArtFest Exhibition where artwork can be displayed to the general public (click Online Art Exhibition to see the wonderful work sent in for ArtFest 2021) and also with our hugely popular Winter Study Courses run several times a year and these are open to all Arts Society members and to the general public.
In April 2022, the 2 day study course, titled Tutankhamun, will celebrate the important centenary of this iconic discovery.
The Area also encourages and promotes Heritage Volunteers, Arts Volunteering activities and Church Trails. Members of these volunteering activities enjoy working together as a team, exploring new interests and learning new skills. Click here to see what Volunteering is all about.
