The Arts Society West Cornwall

 

Our Society brings people together through a shared curiosity for the arts. Our events provide welcoming places to hear expert lecturers share their specialist knowledge about the arts. Our members contribute to and preserve our artistic heritage through volunteering and grants. Our work creates a better, healthier and more connected society.

Every year we hold a wide ranging and fascinating programme of lectures, visits, workshops and social events. We are not a society of artists or craftspeople, but of people who share a curiosity for the arts. Our members (who do include artists and craftspeople) are interested in all art-related disciplines including painting, sculpture, music, literature, ceramics, and architecture. We try and ensure that the programme has something of interest to everyone and with such a committed and enthusiastic membership there’s always something new and exciting going on!

We have now resumed live lectures from September 2021 in the normal lecture theatre at the Zennor Building at Penwith College.  7.30 start.

We welcome guests at our lectures and we’d love to see you . You can see the upcoming lectures and book tickets herehttps://buytickets.at/theartssocietywestcornwall
