encouraging young people
Young Arts support and organise projects in partnership with schools, colleges, galleries and museums, working with arts professionals to develop skills and encourage creativity in young people. We are looking for TASS members to volunteer to support these projects. If interested please contact us at Sherborne@theartssociety.org
